The variety and eminence of San Diego Bay wildlife is captured in this beguiling tinted stainless steel sculpture. San Diego Synergy is an Urban Tree that brings metal to life. A naturalist at heart, artist Kent Kraber forged sheet metal into a collage of sailboats, seabirds and fish sailing along the fluid curves of wind and water.

The Urban Trees exhibitions are a series of displays curated by the Port of San Diego. The objective was to support local artists, punctuate and activate the postcard views of San Diego Bay. The open-air sculpture spectacle inspired people to stroll along the Embarcadero pedestrian promenade. The artist-designed trees added color, form, interest and a sense of fun to the waterfront.
