“San Pedro Park Project” by San Antonio artist Jack Robbins is a series of historically driven porcelain enamel markers. The artwork is in San Pedro Springs Park, the nation’s second-oldest municipal park. The area is steeped in history including being the original settlement site of San Antonio.  During this project Robbins sought to create a project that was historically and cultural accurate, working with stakeholders for three years to do. The series of panels are attached to light piles and speak to the four points of time: the beginnings, the arrivals, today, and tomorrow.
