"Magical" Seesaws Coming to Downtown West Palm Beach

Posted by Lacey Hagler on Thursday, January 30th, 2020 at 3:38pm.

Channeling your inner child will now be so much easier with “magical” seesaws coming to Downtown West Palm Beach.

The interactive art installation, “Impulse”, will bring the joy of musical light up seesaws to Clematis Street from February 15th to March 20th. Consisting of 13 seesaws that project light and sound while in use, Impulse is meant to reflect both intensity and calm. The seesaws will remain illuminated throughout the night when not in use, creating an illuminated atmosphere.

West Palm Beach’s Downtown Development Authority says the installation will cost $60,000, but have a lasting impact on the area and the community’s perception of downtown. This will be the first time this installation will be done in Florida since its debut a few years ago in Montreal, Canada, and it has been on a world tour to places including Brussels, London, Chicago, Australia, Boston, Dallas, Harvard, and Duke University.

The seesaws will be opposite of Subculture Coffee at 512 Clematis Street in Downtown West Palm Beach.
