Renowned Artist Dedicates Waterfront Canoes Sculpture

The Canoes Sculpture Shore DriveJust a few yards away from Point Chesapeake where the bay meets the inlet is a beautiful new sculpture created by nationally renowned artist, Donald Lipski. The Canoes is a gift to the city of Virginia Beach funded by private donations raised from the community by the Public Art Virginia Beach Foundation. One of the many sponsors is The Terry Companies Five, builders of Point Chesapeake on The Bay. The 36-foot sculpture overlooks the new Lesner Bridge and is a welcoming gateway to the bayfront area for residents and visitors alike.

Each of the ten real aluminum canoes set in a sunburst pattern has a filigree design cut, reminiscent of the decorative arts of the early settlers to the area. Lipski wanted to tie the surrounding waterways to this most basic historic watercraft.

In August, the new 10-foot wide multi-use path and overlook located underneath the sculpture opened for pedestrians as cyclists as work continues to complete the bridge expansion. Soon, there will be another 10-foot wide path on the Point Chesapeake side of the bridge.

Read more about The Canoes on www.vbpublicart.org.  On the City of Virginia Beach’s website,  you can also watch the sculpture dedication video and follow the bridge expansion updates.

Upon entering each model through the foyer, you are greeted with full-on, expansive window views from all major living areas of water, sky and the long stretch of sand with untouched dunes in the foreground. Every home is specifically designed to include a bay view and there are only 8 luxury homes per building, giving residents more privacy. Another plus is that while most condos in this corridor of Shore Drive offer only 2 full baths, the homes at Point Chesapeake have 2.5 baths with that extra powder room for guests.

Stylish appointments include:

  • Private, 2-Car, Side-by-Side Garages

Old Lesner Bridge Becomes Artificial Reef for the Bay

view of both old and new lesner bridge

Concrete pieces of the old Lesner Bridge are being submerged 18 miles away in the Chesapeake Bay to expand an artificial reef off the Eastern Shore. While the artificial reefs do not replace natural reefs, they are a tool to encourage fish habitats and give anglers better fishing options. The Virginia Marine Resources Commission has had the artificial reef program for 40 years. As their budget shrinks, the program relies more on donations. McLean Contracting is hiring crews to move the concrete to the reef as VMRC monitors the process. Read More on PilotOnline
