An armadillo made of shovel heads is one of several native Texas critters that will be roaming the North Beach Corridor.

Join Mayor Pro Tem Dennis Shingleton and Councilmember Cary Moon, along with artist Christopher Fennell, for the North Beach public art project kickoff at 9 a.m. Sept. 22 at the Fort Worth Police Department’s Sixth Patrol Division, 8755 N. Riverside Drive.

Fennell will present his final design for the 12 large-scale weathervane sculptures that will be installed along approximately three miles of the North Beach Corridor, from Shiver Road to Timberland Boulevard. Each weathervane features an animal sculpted from upcycled materials collected from the community.

Thanks to a partnership between Fort Worth Public Art and the city’s Code Compliance Department, the public is invited to drop off materials for the artwork at the Hillshire and Brennan drop-off stations. The artist is asking for these materials: baseball bats, hubcaps, birdhouses, trashcans, mailboxes, bicycles, shovel heads, car and truck bumpers, lawnmower blades, chain-link fencing, fence posts, automotive springs and airplane wings.
