Visit Santa Barbara Art Chromatic Gate Installation

Sunday, February 10, 2019
Have you ever wanted to just walk under the rainbow?  How about actually touching it?!  Why not when visiting Santa Barbara's beaches. Designed by famed Herbert Bayer, an artist and architect who lived and created around the globe.  This structure is especially fun to look at as you stand at the beach and watch the clouds pass over the mountains to the east of Chromatic Gate.

This massive piece of work with Unicorn colors is very intriguing with the way the arches are in 90 degree angles.  One of my favorite spots for any photo ops since it's literally across the street from the beach, you get an awesome sunset view as well. Enjoy what this piece of art has to offer on a breathtaking beautiful weather of California. There's lots to do here.

The gate looks great from either side for pictures. Some people can really spend a lot of time taking pictures there. It's really quite photogenic on a clear blue sky day.



Be sure to stop by East Beach where you will see Chromatic Gate, a multi-colored rainbow arch in Cabrillo Park.

A beautiful view of Santa Barbara mountain.

The beach and ocean are across the street.

Santa Barbara is an art mecca and though wine and wineries have taken center stage in recent years, do not ignore the art scene when you visit. An excellent Santa Barbara Art Museum, galleries throughout the city, and art sculptures and installations.  All make it a lively and exciting place to enjoy.
