Coleman Place Elementary School – Garth Edwards “Enchanted Garden”

Installed September 13, 2010                                                

Garth Edwards created “Enchanted Garden” an aluminum mural of whimsical animals and natural forms for the side of Coleman Place Elementary School.  A gateway of fanciful animals greets pedestrians at the Rush Street entrance to the school grounds. The work is elementary age appropriate and conveys the spirit of the school as well as stimulates personal and friendly conversation.  With the flipped orientation of the new school, the work serves as a back gateway way-finder and will become a community place maker providing a distinct identity.
