Seawall Interpretive Trail
The Seawall Interpretive Trail, also known as Project S.I.T, consists of 70 concrete benches covered in hand painted mosaic tile that form a trail along Galveston’s historic Seawall that interpret the ecology, economy, and history of the Texas Coast.
The trail was envisioned by Karla Klay, Executive Director of Artist Boat. While others saw ugly concrete benches, she saw an opportunity for beauty and education. A panel of scientists, artists, and arts professionals chose designs submitted by artists based on execution, technique, originality, organization, and interpretation.
When walking, biking, or jogging along the Seawall, take a moment to check them out. You might just learn something about the Texas Coast.
