In celebration of the unique qualities of The Gate City, Greensboro, NC, and its citizens, the Greenway will include four major pieces of public art that recognize the four pillars that make Greensboro’s character unique.  These four pieces of art will recognize Greensboro’s heritage and also look ahead to its future.

  • Motion – motion/education (southwest corner)
  • Tradition – history (northwest corner)
  • Innovation – industry/textiles (northeast corner)
  • Freedom – civil rights (southeast corner)

The Tradition Cornerstone, Meeting Place was created by Harries and Héder Collaborative. Fabrication of the cornerstone called Meeting Place began over the summer of 2013 and was installed in April 2014.  Jim Gallucci, a local sculptor, has been working with Harries and Héder to create the metal work that will be part of the Tradition Cornerstone and Ian Gamble from Elsewhere Artists Collaborative created the benches and tables in Meeting Place. The octagonal, stainless steel mesh roof displays text from letters that Gen. Greene wrote to Gen George Washington from Guilford Courthouse.
