“Passage” by Linda DePalma

Painted steel

It is particularly apt that at this gateway park on the border of DC and Silver Spring, the public art sculpture is a sweeping pedestrian gateway into the park.  The turquoise, steel sculptural depiction of leaves and acorns adorn the tops of two stone wall piers that serve as a beautiful entrance into the parkland within.  The oak leaves not only echo the landscape that awaits the visitor, but also give a reminder that the acorn is a symbol of Silver Spring.  Jesup Blair Park is the former summer residence of the Blair Family, which was constructed in 1850.  Besides its recently revitalization as a historic park for families to enjoy, it also bridges both the old campus of Montgomery College and its new buildings and expansion into south Silver Spring.
