The Gate Story

 

This gate was conceived in 2014 by Eva Soltes of Harrison House and the

American Artist Mark Bulwinkle. It was a joint undertaking. In 2017 Mr. Bulwinkle

designed and fabricated the gate you see here from re-purposed Bay Bridge

steel. Ms. Soltes's considerable efforts were critical to the completion of our gift to the

magnificent California desert. May birds of a feather forever fly together.
