A giant 48-year-old outdoor sculpture at the center of Atlanta’s Fulton Industrial Boulevard corridor has been refurbished back to its original “sunrise red” luster.

The commercial painting and coating company Benise-Dowling & Associates Inc. of Decatur completed work this month restoring the Atlanta Gateway sculpture, a geometric work built in 1967 at the intersection of Great Southwest Parkway and Fulton Industrial Boulevard in conjunction with a planned industrial park.

The $40,000 restoration was financed by the Fulton Industrial Community Improvement District.

“The revitalization of the Gateway is symbolic of the CID’s efforts to return Fulton Industrial Boulevard to its stature as a catalyst for economic development both regionally and internationally,” said Kent Walker, secretary of the CID board and vice president of Selig Enterprises Inc.
