Poet’s Patio Gate and Mosaic Entry
Artist: James Hubbell
Location: Fallbrook Library
Because James Hubbell believes that libraries are one of civilization’s great inventions fostering sharing, community and democracy, he was pleased to fashion his fourth library art installation for the Fallbrook Library. Playing on the architecture in a friendly way his design, using metal on the gate and glass and natural tiles on the wall just outside the patio, marks it as an entrance that does not compete with the main entrance.
About the Artist: Hubbell’s studio is located in the mountains near Julian, CA and has been producing work since the early 60’s. It has produced thousands of works of art including hand-crafted doors, windows, gates, sculpture in almost every material possible. He is acclaimed for his organic style and his work has been embodied in homes, schools, libraries, gardens, pavilions, nature centers, monasteries, museums, and peace parks around the world. His is the founder and guiding light of the Ilan-Lael Foundation.
