Walmart Public Art
"The GulfStream" sculpture greets visitors entering the city of Boynton Beach from the south on US 1. Local artist Frank Varga created the piece, located at the northwest corner of Gulfstream Boulevard and South Federal Highway (US 1) along the city’s east corridor.
The words "Boynton Beach" are illuminated by LED lighting and topped by an abstract 15 foot high stainless steel sculpture. Two marlins are depicted working together to surround a school of bait fish, huddled in a ball configuration to protect their numbers. The 3 foot “ball of fish” is made of bronze verdigris.
The Gulfstream installation beautifies the community and is the first such public art sculpture in the nation to adorn a Walmart store. The design consulting firm Kimley-Horn And Associates, Inc. hired artist Frank Varga after the city’s Arts Commission approved the concept.
