Sir Russell Coutts, Wellington New Zealand won four America’s Cups (1995, 2000, 2003, 2010).

The installation of “Bliss Dance,” a sculpture created by artist Marco Cochrane, is part of the Treasure Island Development Authority’s public art policy. I watched the artist create and weld his magical 40-foot dancing woman in his studio.
The sculpture was part of the 2010 Burning Man festival and now she is displayed on Treasure Island. Marco Cochrane was born in Italy, raised in Northern California, and currently works out of his studio on Treasure Island in San Francisco Bay.
Bliss Dance was described by city officials as “a marriage of classical sculpture technique and modern design. ”The sculpture is lit by 1,000 LED lights controlled by a customized iPad application.
Wonderful video with artist:
