About “Celebration”

[/vc_column_text]

[vc_column_text]Parents at the Gideon Hausner school commissioned Gardner to produce this piece to stand as a landmark identifying the entrance to the school.  The project was launched in the fall of 2005 and Celebration was installed in May of 2006.  You can see step-by-step photos of the creation of Celebration on the Work-in-Process page.[/vc_column_text]

  1. Celebration is the aesthetic high point for San Antonio Road and I love seeing it every time I happen to be in that area. Now that the flowers and shrubs have grown in so beautifully, that tiny little area is just a jewel. Thanks for showing in this update how well the landscaping has grown in over time. This was just a bare plot of ground not that long ago, so clearly someone has tended to this area of the grounds very nicely.
