Public Art - Marina Arts District in Corpus Christi, TX
Miradors del Mar
When driving or walking along Shoreline Boulevard, next to Corpus Christi Bay, visitors and resident alike have to admire the eight gazebo-like structures called Miradors del Mar or “sea watchers”.
The Devary Durrill Foundation installed the Miradors along the Corpus Christi seawall and they were dedicated in October 1991. They provide visitors with shady rest spots and drinking fountains. Each Mirador contains a different historical plaque and gives visitors the opportunity to learn a little history of the area. One of the Miradors is a tribute to famous Tejano music legend and Corpus Christi native Selena Quintanilla. Visit the Selena Museum.
The benches help to beautify the seawall and also to serve the community as a place to relax, meditate, and enjoy the bay front. The benches are sponsored by families and individuals in memory of loved ones. For information call 884-8857.
