The new Gwynns Falls entrance is part of efforts to protect and reinvigorate Baltimore's famous Druid Hill Park as it celebrates its 150th year. William Cochran's permanent installation Oak Wisdom is comprised of six entablatures on salvaged iron columns, arranged as a seventy foot colonnade. The blood red glass entablatures, laminated with shattered glass, hold silkscreened public memories of the park. The artwork is an abstraction of a sacred oak grove and a standing prayer for the wisdom to rethink our relationship with the natural world. Druid Hill Park is named for giant oaks that once shaded its hills; legend has it that Druids worshiped in sacred oak groves. The word "Druid" means "oak wisdom."
