dc.descriptionDetail of ironwork design with museum beyond; Eliel Saarinen designed many of the gates on Cranbrook’s campus which were first fabricated by John C. Burnett, and later by Walter Nichols. Walter Nichols became the campus blacksmith after Burnett left in 1930. Nichols fabricated numerous gates, railings, and andirons around campus, including the Nichols Gate (at the end of the Triton Pools) which was dedicated to him after his death, in honor of 35 years of service. Nichols Gate is the formal entrance to the Art Academy Campus from Long Pine Road. The gate is topped by the Sitting Boars statues by Carl Milles.
