Artist Chris Fennell’s twelve kinetic weathervane sculptures were recently installed along approximately three miles of the North Beach Street, from Shiver Road to Timberland Boulevard. Pivoting with the direction of the wind, each unique sculpture captures the form of a native animal, bird or reptile using locally-sourced recycled materials.
