Enjoy the view of the Kohl Gate at the Cleveland Botanical Garden. It was created by Albert Paley in May, 2004. The metallic-brown structure sits sixty-feet long and fifteen- feet high and is made of Cor-ten steel depicting enormous, stylized leaf shapes. The steel plantings mirror the Botanical Garden's own collections of plants native to Costa Rica and Madagascar.
The structure was created in Paley's Rochester, N.Y. studio. Paley wanted to introduce a sculpture that drew its imagery from the botanical world- reflecting the Garden's purpose.
I thought it was seriously impressive. Your thoughts?
