Police/Fire Conference Room
420 15th Street, Manhattan Beach, CA
Light Gate is located at the top of 14th Street, between City Hall and the new library, along Highland Avenue in Manhattan Beach, CA. The artwork is made of glass, laminated with prismatic lighting film that will create rich and varied light effects with the sun. Light Gate will focus the view through an opening down 14th Street to the Ocean.
It will be a place of constantly shifting light and view, more than a solid object. It will put the visitor in the center of this important nexus. As you move around and through the sculpture, it will shift unexpectedly from transparency, to prismatic refraction, to mirror reflection. The glass and steel construction playing with the sunlight will harmonize with the crystalline glass architecture of the new library.
For more information on the dedication ceremony, please contact the Parks and Recreation Department at (310) 802-5448.
