Second Street School Altar

Posted in Bicycle Part Art, Recycled/Found Material, Steel on September 14, 2011 by troyneiman

Second Street Children’s School Commissioned myself through BICAS to build a Day of the Dead Altar that will remain active all year round. This will be a place for the students to remember family members, pets, birds, bugs and plants that have passed on. A number of shelves allow for a place to leave offerings and keepsakes. I built this Alter using Steel and scrap bicycle parts, the boards are from the old shelves at our beloved Casa Video. 6′ x 3.5′ x 8″

I had posted the newly installed photos a while back but I wanted to share this picture that they sent me  with the altar decorated by the kids.

This bench was recently installed at San Antonio Park in Barrio San Antonio (AKA Lost Barrio). The neighborhood has put a lot of work into this park and it shows. This small park is easily one of the nicest in Tucson and I am thrilled to have been able to build a small part of it.

This fence was built for Ed Stokes in the historic Pie Allen Neighborhood in Tucson.   It was installed back in 2010 and has rusted nicely over the past year.  Besides the main posts its entirely made of bike parts and pieces.
