Convergence comprises two pieces. The street-level piece is a tall, vertical art work placed on the south side of the Indiana Avenue and Michigan Street bridge over the Downtown Canal. The canal-level art work is a rendition of an old canal lock and includes historical information, a water fountain, and a bench for Canal visitors to enjoy. This gateway serves as a highly visible, artistic place-marker, attracting residents and visitors from street down to the Canal. The artist team of Bernie Carreno, Luis Morales, and David Thomas designed, fabricated, and implemented this artistic gateway. Their proposal was chosen after a competitive process that involved public input on the top three proposals.
