In addition to continuing to put out music, Bob Dylan has taken up a number of hobbies in his later years, one of which is the sculpting of iron gates. His first gate was put on display at the Halcyon Gallery in 2013, and now a new piece called “Portal” is being permanently installed at Maryland’s MGM’s National Harbor Casino, a new venue that opens later this year, as Rolling Stone points out.
“Gates appeal to me because of the negative space they allow,” Dylan said in a press release. “They can be closed, but at the same time they allow the seasons and breezes to enter and flow. They can shut you out or shut you in. And in some ways, there is no difference.” Very poetic for a welder! I mean, a legendary musician.
Please, put your best ironwork Dylan puns below.
