Prospectus Ocean View Beach Park

Site plan

The Planning Committee wants artwork placed in Ocean View Beach Park to represent the authentic, salty integrity of OV. The artwork should directly engage visitors, instilling passion and excitement. It should highlight Ocean View’s uniqueness, natural beauty and great beaches. The artwork should be contemporary and forward-thinking yet, embody the meaning and history of the area.

The artwork can be placed in variety of planting beds that surround the open green spaces of the park. Artists should be aware that Ocean View Beach Park is used year-round for a variety of public festivals. Green spaces and pathways need to remain open for people to gather and to ensure set-up for events, ingress/egress and emergency access. A planting bed is centrally located in the park, on the boardwalk side away from the street. Another good location for artwork is along a path between Ocean View Avenue and the bay at the west end of the park. Both areas are marked on the attached site plan.

The artwork should be seen from passing vehicles and be engaging to pedestrians and those using the park. Artists may want to create a kinetic piece that would harness the wind. Artwork must be durable and of permanent materials that can withstand the bay’s wind and water and are safe and easily maintained.
