Spanish Gate

Spanish Gate


This often-overlooked functional sculpture is located along the western outside wall of the Ruth Lilly Library. This gate was produced by a factory worker named Lucio Ruiz Rojas and was originally purchased for a hotel in Madrid, Spain. The artwork was a gift to the Art Center in memory of Irving and Frank C. Springer, Jr.
