Tide the Turtle

TIDE the Turtle

by Bryan Deluca & Eli Fishman

The Sea Turtle Sculpture was designed and built by The Sculpture Illuminare team, headed by Bryan DeLuca, Executive Director of the Long Island Aquarium and Eli Fishman, the Resident Artist and Exhibit Design Manager of the aquarium. “We built this giant sculpture to recognize the great work the NYMRC does in rescuing, rehabilitating and releasing endangered sea turtles back into our local waters,” said DeLuca. The Sea Turtle will be installed for a limited time in the Milton L Burns Park on Peconic Ave in Downtown Riverhead, for the Reflextions Riverhead, Art in the Park events. Art installations are visible during the day, but at night, the magic of the pieces comes to life when they are illuminated based on the artists’ interpretation and design. The first Refextions event of the season, takes place on June 29th, when the sculpture will make its debut.
