July 2014 65 As visitors arrive in the Rory Meyers Children's Adventure Garden at the Dallas Arboretum on flagstone pavers, they pass through a sculptural gateway and under an arch bearing the garden's namesake. The entry gate (31.5-ft. wide by 15.5-ft. tall) has 3/8-inch dia., solid steel rods decorated with Monarch butterflies and bluebonnet leaf patterns. The gate, arch, sign (Big D Metalworks) and shade structures (Steel Boss/Baten) are galvanized steel. An arching 10-inch dia. steel pipe frame supports the 1-ft. 7.5-inch dia. aluminum ribbon band, upon which is Harrington bold lettering in a Tnemic medium-bronze color. Pins secure the lettering to the background ribbon, and ½-inch steel tendrils are welded to the leaves and to the pipe frame. PHoTo: MKW + ASSoCiATeS
