The OV Coastal VA Plein Air Public Art planning committee has selected Eileen Gay to create a mosaic sculpture to be placed in Ocean View Beach to represent the authentic, salty integrity of OV. The artwork will directly engage visitors, instilling passion and excitement and will highlight Ocean View’s uniqueness, natural beauty and great beaches. The artwork will be contemporary, forward-thinking and embody the meaning and history of the area. This is the 2nd private partnership/match project the City of Norfolk’s public art program will install. Coastal Va. Plein Air raised half of the funds for this project.
Proposed sculpture “Chryshellis” was approved Sept. 2020. The 8ft sculpture with a curved shell-like exterior will encase an interior porcelain and glass tile sunrise mosaic.
