Malcolm Leland's gates are put into use - San Diego CityBEAT

Graphic designer and restaurateur Jeff Motch is forever connected to the massive cast-aluminum gates standing at the entrance of Panama 66 , the new café and bar that inhabits the outdoor courtyard at the San Diego Museum of Art in Balboa Park.

Motch, who runs the restaurant with his partners—the same team behind Blind Lady Ale House and Tiger!Tiger!—has a large scar on his noggin, the result of knocking the top of his head against the edge of one of the 8-foot-tall gates as he was loading it into a van.

The eye-catching gates are essentially functional sculptures designed by modernist artist Malcolm Leland , who had a studio in Potrero for many years and is best known locally for his " Bow Wave " sculpture and fountain at San Diego Civic Plaza.

All the gates had been in use from 1966 through the early '70s, but about half came down when it was decided that the empty patch of land to the west of the museum's courtyard would become a sculpture garden rather than an additional west wing.

Motch got permission from the museum to use a few of Leland's gates in the design of a new bar for Panama 66.

"The bar that was here before looked like an Ikea bar just dropped down in the middle of the space," Motch explains. "It never felt right. We thought there had to be a better solution, design-wise, that makes it feel like it belongs here."

The challenge was to somehow keep the large bar mobile, because the space is often rented out for private events, while also incorporating the extremely heavy gates into the design. Motch collaborated with architecturally trained designer Jonathon Stevens and metal fabricator Ty Meservy, who...
