Schelling, Robert

Lechmere/East Cambridge, Sculpture

Gore St. at 6th St.

Location Description: Gold Star Mothers Park, at three gateway entrances along Gore St.

Date: 2006

Materials: Bronze

Artist Robert Schelling cast seven bronze relief sculptures for the three gateways to Gold Star Mothers Park on Gore Street in East Cambridge. In the artist's words, his sculptures "celebrate forms that accompany us in the moment, that we all share in nature, culture, sports, and our daily lives." At once playful and mystical, Schelling's abstracted motifs mark the experience of leaving the urban complexity of the neighborhood and entering a park that invites play, rest, and recreation.
