The Santa Monica Pier is a large double-jointed pier in Santa Monica, California, United States, located at the foot of Colorado Avenue. The Pier includes a small amusement park, food stands, and viewing and fishing sites. There's also a vintage carousel hippodrome from the 1920s, the Heal the Bay-operated Santa Monica Pier Aquarium, stores, entertainment, a video arcade, a trapeze school, pubs, and restaurants. Anglers flock to the Pier's west end to cast their lines. The Pier also serves as a place for outdoor concerts, movies, and other events. In this colorful painting by Morgan, the charm of the illuminated Pier blends with the setting sun – reflections scatter across the surface of the Pacific ocean.
