The First Installation

The only photos (that we know of) of the original installation underneath the train bridge on Encinitas Blvd and Hwy 101.


Mark Patterson (the artist) and Bob Nichols (President of Surfing Madonna Oceans Project) clandestinely installed the 10’x10′ glass mosaic underneath the train bridge on Encinitas Blvd and Hwy 101 dressed as construction workers in the middle of the afternoon on Friday, April 22, 2011.
