Today Shadow, Wilma, My Mom, and I Adventured to the Sea Flower/ Sea Urchin in New Bedford, Massachusetts. The Sea Flower is an abstract sculpture of a sea urchin, designed from wood and steal materials. The sculpture was installed in 1978 by artist James Suris. It was quite controversial for many years, as many did not feel it was appropriate choice for a town known for its whaling history.
We had a fun Adventure to the Sea Flower, located in front of the Federal building in the downtown area of New Bedford. We spent much of the day exploring New Bedford, and the Sea Flower was the only new location that I had not yet blogged about, so here I go….
I was excited to find this original, and unique sculpture. We discovered it where expected but yet in what seemed an odd location for this creative artwork. After parking we wandered over to the Sea Flower to snap some photographs and see this handiwork. There was not much to it but definitely unique, and innovative. My Mom was quite unenthused with the Sea Flower, but I however enjoyed this unusual landmark. Glad to we could locate the Sea Flower for some entertaining posing today (Rating: 3).
