Myth (Red Pelican)
The pelican has long been a signature emblem of St. Petersburg, and in 2020, the City made it oﬃcial by naming the brown pelican the City’s oﬃcial bird. To honor the pelican, Nathan Mabry of Los Angeles has created an origami-style rendering of the city bird in brilliant red that is sure to thrill visitors at the entry of The Pier. The 10-foot-high sculpture has been fabricated from thick aluminum plate metal and coated with a satin painted ﬁnish. Look closely as you walk around the Pier; there are smaller red pelicans on display throughout the district!
