Malibu’s first installation of public art  took place on Friday, and was probably the first time a nine-time Grammy-award winning musician, a Chumash Indian blessing and a streaking fire engine from Station 70 came together. That’s Malibu!

And, Sting showed up.

The occasion Friday was the dedication of “Freedom,” the totem local resident and music legend Herb Alpert gifted to the people of Malibu.

Alpert is a co-founder of A&M Records and a philanthropist, regularly giving to music programs. He also is a renowned fine artist in both paint and sculpture, often inspired by Native Americans.

Alpert remarked:

” I hope you like this piece. You have to see it from many different angles. You know, the one thing about sculpture, it’s like, it can’t just look good from the front. It has to look good all the way around. It has to look good from the other side.”
