Beth Galston talks about the design of an urban park - Beth Galston
Description
Both the time of day and location of the viewer change the perspective of the fence. As Galston noted on her website, "The design for the sculpture creates a sense of motion and dynamism, suggestive of wind or water movement. The sculptural fence echoes the swirling design of the landscape - the curved granite walls and paving designs - to create a unified artistic vision, welcoming visitors into the park."
