Artist:  Jay Markel


Dedicated:  February 1994

"Urban Palisades" is an urban representation of a mountain range with its intersecting metal bars forming a type of landscape.  Two steel posts support a bronze latticework that creates the mountainous landscape.  What looks to be a stone caught in the middle of the latticework is actually cast bronze as well.  The dark-green,undulating sculpture provides a contrast to the light-coloured, geometric architecture of the police station behind it.  It also casts some interesting-looking shadows.
