CVS CLOWN VENICE BEACH

Venice, California, walking down the ocean promenade is half the fun, as there is so much more to see if you walk east. Main Street has the Clown in a Dress, nicknamed “Ballerina Clown” or “Clownerina.” It’s a ballerina clown in a dress, wearing over-sized white gloves and a red-nosed clown face. It is a Jonathan Borofsky’s creation made in 1989, it’s 30 feet tall above the CVS.

The rumor is there is an electric motor that makes the right leg execute a slow kick forward. It was turned off in 1990 as building tenants complained that it was too noisy. It was restored in 2014, and now the CVS Clown in Venice Beach kicks between 1pm and 6pm daily. Stop by it makes a great video and most people have not seen the clown in action.

Singing Beach Chairs On Santa Monica Beach Santa Monica, California

Singing Beach Chairs in Santa Monica, California, is it an art display or just a great place to totally relax. Singing Beach Chairs are by Doug Hollis, they are located on Santa Monica Beach between Pico Boulevard and the pier. What are Singing Beach Chairs, they are steel and aluminum sculptures that come alive when the wind blows through the tall pipes. You can seat two people per chair, sit back relax and enjoy the beach, a great spot to watch sunsets. I have seen these chairs so many times, as most of you have and as they are great looking chairs they really do sing, try them out next time your in the area.
