The historic neighborhood of Copper-Young in the Midtown section of Memphis, in the United States, named for its placement at the intersection of Cooper Street and Young Avenue, is known for its eclectic mix of shops, bars and restaurants. The entrance to the neighborhood is marked by the Cooper-Young Trestle, a century-old, 46 meters long railway trestle, that was converted into a welcoming gateway to the community. The steel structure is decorated, on both sides of the railroad trestle, by the fake facades of twelve actual buildings from the neighborhood. At night the trestle comes to life as LED lights give the houses and businesses depicted in the trestle art a soft and convivial glow. The Cooper-Young Trestle Art Gateway was created in 2000 by local artist blacksmith Jill Turman, and has since become a source of community pride and identity.
