Description: The New Arc project by Antonio Pio Saracino is a landmark for the City of Newark. It was selected as winner in a public competition by the Newark EDC and the City of Newark for a new development in Mulberry Commons. The project was presented to the City Council of Newark after it was selected as an iconic public art project for Mulberry Commons. The New Arc draws inspiration from the Arch tradition which is a symbol for many cultures, often seen as a metaphor for the departure from the familiar, representing a universal and ideal portal for an optimistic and bright future.
