Chromatic Gate that looks like a rainbow gets a fall cleaning

The iconic “Chromatic Gate” designed by the late Montecito artist Herbert Bayer is getting a fall cleaning.

Art historians have said Bayer got some of his inspiration from Kandinsky.

Some people call it a rainbow arch.

People often walk under the arch and take pictures of it as they head to Santa Barbara’s East Beach.

The city of Santa Barbara hired a crew from Silverlake Conservation to clean it without harming the sculpture’s bright colors.

They started on Monday and plan to be finished in a few days.
