The Avalon City Council unanimously supported a proposal to extend Doug Aitken’s Underwater Sculptures exhibition through March 2017.
Council members previously supported Aitken’s modern art concept to be installed underwater at Avalon Harbor. The exhibition would feature three underwater sculptures at Dive Park near Casino Drive.
The three sculptures have since been installed but were only scheduled to be on display through Dec. 31. Staff at The Parley Foundation requested Avalon staff and council members to extend the exhibition another 90 days.
Council members approved the extension at their Dec. 20 meeting.
Divers will be able to visit the underwater modern art exhibition inside Avalon Harbor through March 2017, three months beyond the initial run period.
