New sculpture installed on Grand Haven shoreline

GRAND HAVEN, Mich. (WZZM)- Grand Haven's shoreline just got a little more interesting thanks to a new art sculpture installed Thursday. 

A 30 foot tall kinetic wind sculpture was finished Thursday morning.  It is one of the closing events in the Grand Haven Artwalk.  The piece is from artist Mike Westra, one of last year's top ten ArtPrize finalists.

The chefs at Snug Harbor Restaurant next door say it has already caused a commotion.  Chef Cory Holleman says, "I think was tastefully done, keeping a moderate feel of the lakeshore.  There's been quite a bit of foot traffic, people asking about it.  The response in general seems to pretty good."

The piece was created from repurposed traffic light posts that were taken down during construction on Washington Avenue.

The Artwalk ends this Saturday but the sculpture is permanent.
