Marc Fornes' Spineway was commissioned through the City of San Antonio's 2012 Bond Public Art Plan. The structure is modeled after the architectural bridges that symbolize the connection of Woodlawn Lake Park to the surrounding neighborhoods, as well as, reflecting the movement of people from every direction that use the park. The structure is comprised of 1,009 aluminum 1/8" shingles, 19,429 rivets, 12 precast concrete feet and 22 different colors creating an iconic gateway that sits 20' H x 63' W x 26' D. The metal's chiseled motif follows the structural flow allowing speckled light to pass through the shingles during the day and LED lights at night providing an inviting glow for the passersby to explore the installation. The complete redesign of the triangle island includes new sidewalks, parking enhancements and landscaping.
