“An entrance should make a strong, incisive statement because it creates the first impression,” artist Clyde Lynds says of the aptly named Gateway in Camden.
Located at Fourth and Cooper streets, the Gateway is two 10-foot high, glass panel walls that marks a transition from the city to the Camden Campus. At night, all 23 glass panels, etched with illustrations of prominent moments in civilization, are illuminated, highlighting an additional sculpture made of concrete, fiber optics, and glass that features a display of flickering light.
The $1 million project, installed in September 2007, helped transform an underutilized street into a pedestrian-only green space. Learn more.
