Artist: Jim Sanborn

Material: Granite with wave pool water feature

Commissioned by Foulger Pratt Companies

Known to locals as “the wave pool,” Coastline is actually an educational tool that exemplifies the mission of the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA).  Using the power of the seas as an inspiration, Jim Sanborn developed a water environment/ornamental foundation which replicates a 65 foot section of coastline with its wave action.
