Location:
Harriet Island Gateway

History:
The city created this entrance through the levee system protecting the West Side of Saint Paul to encourage pedestrians from the neighborhood to frequent the park.  Using 14.5 million dollars, the city renovated Harriet Island Park.  This was part of a project redirecting the city’s attention to the Mississippi River, the reason for the establishment of Saint Paul.  The stone carvings depict the history of the immigrants of the West Side neighborhood. 

David graduated from the University of Minnesota in 1976, with a Bachelor of Science in Art Education and received from the University of Oregon his Master of Fine Arts in Painting.  He presently creates collaborative environmental site works, drawing on the culture of the people for whom he creates the piece.  He lives in the West Side of Saint Paul.
