Precious Cargo is a public art installation that aims to increase safety and beautify Pine Avenue between Seaside Way and Shoreline Drive. It is a modular system with four standard units used as seating, bike racks and signage. Solar collectors will harvest energy from the sun and illuminate the pieces at night. Wayfinding messages will be branded into upcycled wooden pallets using pyrography giving the furniture a distinctive cargo-like look that speaks to Long Beach’s nautical and industrial history.
