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

Due to forecasted storms for most of the day on Saturday, the material collection event for the upcoming North Beach Street public art project has been postponed to April 27.

Residents are invited to drop off materials for Christopher Fennell’s weather vane sculptures from 9-11 a.m. April 27 at Heritage Church of Christ, 4201 Heritage Trace Parkway.

Fennell will use the materials to create 12 large-scale weathervane sculptures that will be installed along 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.

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.

Material donations will still be accepted at the Hillshire and Brennan drop-off stations.
