Illuminating Artwork and Illuminating Lives
A campaign that has provided significant endowment support for the Rutgers-Camden Faculty of Arts and Sciences, the Gateway Project also represents a dazzling new entrance into the campus.
The Gateway Project transformed a portion of Fourth Street into a green park accentuated by an ambitious installation of public artwork. Designed by acclaimed New Jersey artist Clyde Lynds, the artwork consists of two murals on walls of tempered glass and stainless steel that illuminate internally at night and converge on a striking monolith.
Conceived and driven by the Dean's Leadership Council, a group of dedicated and successful alumni/ae, the Gateway Project has also transformed lives by offering an entrance to achievement as it provided philanthropic support for the students, faculty, staff, and initiatives of the Rutgers-Camden Faculty of Arts and Sciences.
A dedication ceremony, in which more than 150 guests attended, was held on Oct. 11, 2007.
