Palm Beach County Gardens Branch Library
11303 Campus Drive, Palm Beach Gardens, FL
Designed, fabricated and installed by artist Garth Edwards, Garden Gate is inspired by Palm Beach Gardens' early vision of the town becoming a "Garden City". Garths design and color palette complement the library's interior design and architectural features, resulting in a vibrant, whimsical installation that appears to bloom from the walls and corners of the library.
Just past the entrance, visitors are greeted with colorful vine-like sculptures. Alive with imaginative depictions of local flora and fauna, a gardenesque archway invites visitors into the library's youth and family section. Here, plant inspired sculptures on the reference desk continue the garden theme, while functioning as corner guards.
