The above photo is of Greensboro's Millennium Gate located at Governmental Plaza. The sculpture's surface has 106 icons, created by Jim Gallucci and a team of 17 artists. The icons represent important events and people in history over the last 1,000 years. Being in a public space, off of Greene Street, it is always open and a great place to teach your friends and family about history informally. This sculpture is such a fine piece of public art.
If you ever have jury duty, or a need to be at the Greensboro Court House, or do early voting downtown, you should schedule in some time to tour this great work of art. It is equally beautiful by day and by night. Happy Thursday!
