Front dropped for better angle

The new Big Blue Crab was originally installed July 28-29 with aerodynamics in mind to ensure it would withstand maximum winds. Hurricane Harvey destroyed the previous one. Sculptor Joe Barrington returned a short time later and lowered the two front posts on which the crab rests, pictured, giving the stainless steel sculpture the “tilt” locals were used to, and making it a nicer backdrop for photographs. The topsides of each piece are powder coated.
