NORTHSIDE SKATE PARK – Chris Fennell

trees

Installed November 2012

In October 2012, Chris visted Norfolk to work with students from Virginia Wesleyan.  The students painted decks that were used to create Skate Trees that provide shade at the park.  Chris invited locals to the park for a “PAINT THE DECKS” party where both children and adults painted their own masterpiece on decks that were used for the project.  Chris bolted the decks onto sweeping steel tubes to resemble giant leaves that form benches.
