Pascagoula Public Art Enterprise unveils second sculpture to the public
The team with the Pascagoula Public Art Enterprise has unveiled its second of three public sculptures downtown in the city.
The sculpture is named ‘the hurricrane’ and is an abstract work made with sourced scrap metal collected by the artists from Ingalls Shipyard.
The hurricrane pays homage to our resilience after hurricanes as well as Ingalls Shipbuilding, the state’s largest employer, making its home in Pascagoula since 1938.
The color of the sculpture is the same as the crane ‘Goliath’ at Ingalls.
One of the three sculptures remain to be placed which will be named ‘Between Two Waters’ and will celebrate the Pascagoula River and the Gulf of Mexico. Walter Anderson Museum of Art Executive Director Julian Rankin said, “It’s exciting to see you know the — you have proof of concept with the first one, another one comes along, there’s more ahead; So, it’s great to see, and we really do love this particular piece because it does pay homage to the community, the traditions and legacy but also the direction that Pascagoula’s headed.”
The third sculpture is hoped to be unveiled by the end of fall.
