Ghost Ship is located at 5 Southeast Madison Avenue, along the Eastbank Esplanade. Installed in 2001, the sculpture is one of four by Rigga along the esplanade; the others are Echo Gate and Stack Stalk by Ean Eldred and Alluvial Wall by Peter Nylen.[1] It is hexagonal-shaped, measures 8 feet (2.4 m) x 2 feet (0.61 m) x 9 feet (2.7 m), and is made of copperplate, copper bar, stainless steel, hundreds of pieces of art glass, a metal halide lamp, and a halogen lamp.[1][2][3] Its base measures 3.5 feet (1.1 m).[3]

Ghost Ship honors Portland's maritime history and commemorates the ships which wrecked while crossing the Columbia River bar.[2][4] The work has been described as a "sculptural ghost illuminated from within, a beacon from the past marking the river's edge".[4] The Smithsonian Institution categorizes the work as abstract, architectural (ship) and fantasy (ghost).[5] It was funded by the City of Portland Portland Development Commission's Percent for Art program and is part of the City of Portland and Multnomah County Public Art Collection courtesy of the Regional Arts & Culture Council.[2][3]
