Blue Sail” – Richard Edelman, Artist

Purchased February 2015

To commemorate the completion of the new marina in Egg Harbor, the Village commissioned renowned sculptor, Richard Edelman, to create a piece of public art that would echo the magic of sailing. Edelman has a great interest in the wind. Which has led him to rebuild many 1930’s Wincharger generators, the world’s first wind turbines, and to create sculptures based on American weathervanes.

“Straight lines will not do for the wind, but a series of crescents together seemed to fill with the wind. The electrostatic paint process was used to apply the blue of marine canvas, which in turn references the color of brisk, blowing, sunny days on Green Bay.”
