Folk Art: Gabriel's Garden

Field review by the editors.

Eureka, California

Romano Gabriel, a local gardener, fashioned packing crates into folk art surrounding his home for 30 years. He died in 1977. Before his front yard assemblage was destroyed, local preservationists swept in and carted it to safety. It can be seen today arrayed in a two-story glass enclosure next to a bank and a remade touristy zone in Eureka.
