About the project
The Meir Sherman Garden is located in the heart of the City Center. The park consists of terraced lawns and sitting areas, and features On the Threshold of Jerusalem, a polished steel sculpture by French artist Jean Arp (1886-1966). In the late 1950s, Arp created a series of Threshold sculptures that resemble reliefs whose backgrounds have been removed and replaced by scenic space. Arp created On the Threshold of Jerusalem between 1961-1972, as an enlarged version of The Three Graces, a piece he had created in 1961 as part of the Threshold series. Characteristic of the artist’s work, the piece is at once abstract and sensuous, geometric and organic. The garden connects to the Brander Park & Gardens below.
