Blue Guardian Park is located in a Camden neighborhood presently undergoing a renaissance.
Projects have involved both children and seniors in the community through Rutgers/Camden association with
Respond, Inc. 2006, saw the first placement of permanent structures with the mosaic Elder Thrones.
The Blue Guardians were created by children just prior to Halloween of 2005 and managed to survive the elements through
two winters,even though they were temporary creations. Because they made such a big impact with the community,
they are now being translated into permanent painted steel entryways and gateways. More mosaic structures and planters
are also in the planning stage, as depicted in the following drawings.

Pictured below are Blue Guardians that survived two harsh winters.

The mosic designs for the Elder Thrones were created with Seniors and their grandchildren at
Respond, Inc. in Camden, NJ
