Mt. Washington Gateway

Mt. Washington Gateway

 Dedicated September 2010

The Project was managed by the MWCURC in cooperation with the City of Cincinnati and collaboration with the Mt. Washington Community Council. The monument rests on a portion of Stanbery Park. The Cincinnati Park Board and the Stanbery Park Advisory Committee were instrumental in this venture..

The monument was designed by the artist, Edward Casagrande, and a design team of Mt. Washington residents. The architectural team of Mark Macomber(Macomber Design Build) and Jim Frank (Frank Design Studio) designed the setting, administered and executed the project in conjunction with the artist, general contractor and subcontractors.

The monument is a gateway to the northern entrance to the Mt. Washington business district. The concave design welcomes. The monument langauge is our natural setting – the river, hills and sky of our region – while also paying homage to the iconic water tower, the beacon on the hill.

The Artist

Edward Casagrande

“I believe that through the design process, outlined in my proposal, there will be a final work that both celebrates the values and spirit of the community while establishing an iconic/ landmark gesture that will be woven into the community visual language. I feel that the dramatic and prime visual location along the hillside entry to Mt. Washington can deliver both the functional, required messaging and also symbolize the inherent character of the community.”

Artist’s Mission Statement

As  a graduate of the University of Cincinnati’s School of Design, Architecture, Art and Planning (DAAP), Edward Casagrande once envisioned turning steel into powerful archtectural expressions. While studying architecture, he developed a fascination with archeology and anthropology. Now equippped with these disciplines about culture, cultural artifacts, religious and spiritual notions, Edward began his exploration of symbology, riual, ceremony, and meaning. After nearly eleven years as an architectural designer, Edward changed his path and his life’s focus.

Edward’s design language is revealed through a simple mantra “earth,sky and in-between love!” His twelve years as a sculptor have gained him national recognotion by private, corporate and pulic at aficianados. Edward’s work at Procter and Gamble, Aveda Frederic’s, the Ronald McDonald House, ISI and many other commercial and residential locations.
