Eldorado Bridge, Stockton, California

TREASURE SHIPS is composed of two railings that span a bridge over the Eldorado River, a tributary of the San Joaquin River System that brought the 49ers to California in search of the Mother Lode. The golden orbs in place of “portholes” symbolize the ferocious search for gold that brought explorers to this region creating a shipping industry as well as mining.
