About The Fence
These wrought iron architectural panels were installed before the two nearby fifty-foot totem poles were completed and installed. Victor Steinbrueck wrote a letter in 1984 which detailed the work he initiated for the park. Included in the letter is this reference to Torres' work: "The six foot high green wrought iron screens were wrought by Roman Torres of Mexican Iron and Brass Works from designs by Victor Steinbrueck. They are somewhat abstracted floral designs from standard iron shapes, and form a background for the poles."
