Construction of the Compassion Corner Earthbench came to an end last Friday, May 31st. While the majority of the construction took place during a community build on April 28th, the finishing touches have been added since.
The bench – constructed entirely from bottle bricks and cob – commemorates the work of David Breaux, who has dedicated the last four years of his life inspiring passers-by to reflect on the meaning of the word compassion. The California Aggie and Aggie TV were there to capture the construction of the bench, which is a gift to the City of Davis’ public arts collection.
