Join Councilmembers Dennis Shingleton and Cary Moon in meeting Christopher Fennell and seeing his artwork proposal for the North Beach Corridor project at 6:30 p.m. Sept. 13 at Heritage Church of Christ, 4201 Heritage Trace Parkway.

Artist Christopher Fennell uses locally-recycled materials to build site-specific installations across the United States.

With an engineering degree from the University of South Florida, Fennell left his career in aerospace design to pursue his interest in art. After earning a master of fine arts degree from the University of Georgia, he discovered his love for using discarded objects to create sculpture. The artist places recognizable objects into organic forms, like a wave of 60 canoes, a ball of 600 baseball bats or a tornado of 120 bicycles.
