Florentijn Hofman’s Rubber Duck Project will make its U.S. West Coast debut at Tall Ships Festival L.A., August 20, 2014, sailing into the Port of Los Angeles Harbor leading the Tall Ships Grand Parade of Sail.
The Port of Los Angeles is the first U.S. West Coast port to host the globally famous rubber duck and only the second North American city to do so. The Duck Project is the creative effort of internationally renowned artist Florentijn Hofman (The Netherlands). “The rubber duck knows no frontiers, it doesn’t discriminate people and doesn’t have a political connotation. The friendly, floating rubber duck has healing properties: it can relieve the world’s tensions as well as define them. The rubber duck is soft, friendly and suitable for all ages,” Hofman said.
Come visit the World’s Largest Rubber Duck at Tall Ships LA August 20-24.
