Repurposed Shovel Archway

October 18, 2013

I love this curved archway made of 400 donated, repurposed shovels. Artist Chris Fennell is the creator of this ingenious design. The archway will direct visitors from the City of Davis to the UC Davis campus. There will be a Shovel Sculpture Dedication on Sunday, October 27 from 1:00 – 3:00 p.m. You can read more about this resourceful archway here.

  1. How cool. I can’t wait to hear the rest of the story.


    • Bernadine, click on the link and you can read about it. Check out the Flicker slides while you are there. So glad, Anonymous, that you enjoyed watching them.


  2. Loved all the Flicker slides that were on the link. I hope to see it someday.
