River Origins and Movements #1 and #2

George Schroeder

Camden and Newell Street Bridges

The River Origins #1 and #2 are abstract interpretations of plants and animals,that from the river below become fluid lines of forged steel. Designed and installed by San Antonio sculptor and metal artist George Schroeder, these forms grace both the Camden St. and Newell St. bridges. These street-level hand-railings bookend the Grotto area below.


The San Antonio River Foundation commissioned and funded public artworks for the benefit of our community and in support of our partners in the $384M San Antonio River Improvements Project. All works along the Mission Reach have been donated to the City of San Antonio’s public art collection in perpetuity.
