Puerta del Color I and II are matching abstract sculptures created from stone and glass. They are easily seen when driving north on Kelly from Covell. Originally they stood on a walking path south of this location, however, vandals were damaging them, and they were moved about a half mile north. They are mounted on the median on top of a bridge which crosses a creek on Kelly Road, just south of Coffee Creek Road.
The two sculptures are identical, but mirror images. The artist Gary Reiche has created several of the pieces of public art in Edmond. They consist of a rusticated stone slab to which is attached on one side and the top a gridwork of metal in which are hung translucent 4-5″ squares of colored glass. The glass swings freely in the breeze. The colors are gold, shades of turquoise, clear and various shades of tan.
