Bruno Herman Groth’s (1905-1991) steel sculpture “Seagull,” circa 1960s, is Trinidad Museum’s latest acquisition, a gift from Trinidad Museum’s founder, Bruce Pettit. 

The fanciful sculpture greets visitors at the entry of the museum, which is open through the summer on Thursdays through Sundays from 12:30 to 4 p.m.

Bruno Groth, born in Stolp, Germany, is one of Humboldt County’s most internationally, and locally, renowned artists. He lived with his late wife, Nita, and children Nina and David, all accomplished artists as well, in their architecturally intricate, rustic and enchanting home designed and built by Groth off Scenic Drive. 

Groth is commemorated on the Memorial Wall at Trinidad Bay Memorial Park off Edwards Street.
