Citygarden to Celebrate Tenth Anniversary by Adding New Sculptures

In celebration of the 10th anniversary of the garden’s opening in 2009, the Gateway Foundation will install three new sculptures on the site this spring and summer.
The installation of the first piece, “Unzip the Earth,” is complete! It is a giant zipper made of stainless steel and bricks, created by Floyd Elzinga, a Canadian artist known for work that is often considered playful. It is on the south lawn of the garden near Eighth Street.  “Unzip the Earth” is a temporary installation, so come down and check it out this spring and summer!
Citygarden unveiled the second sculpture on May 8th! This new and permanent resident, can be found on the roof of the cafe-Kaldi's Coffee at Citygarden-overlooking the waterfall. Love vs Money by the Los Angeles artist Kaï is 15 feet tall and made of fiberglass and metal. 
You can find photos on Twitter @CitygardenSTL or on Instagram
Did you know? The new sculptures will be the first in the garden since “Big Suit” was installed in 2011 and will temporarily bring the total number of sculptures on the site to 27. 
All of the sculptures are on loan to the City of St. Louis from the Gateway Foundation.
