A recently constructed roundabout in Camino will soon receive a finishing touch: a new sculpture from local artist Terrie Bennett. The sculpture—an artful rendering of an apple—represents an exercise in community self-definition and an elegant exploration of the culture, economy and values of Camino/Fruitridge Ag. District. Locals and visitors alike will be able to appreciate the sculpture when it debuts in Fall 2024, just in time for harvest season.


Located centrally, just off Highway 50, the apple will be seen by motorists from every direction as they circumnavigate it on the roundabout.


The sculpture will be fabricated out of Corten steel with a rust patina, with laser cut designs representing the local area. The laser cut illustrations, viewable on each side, will be backlit from the sky and surrounding landscape.


You are invited to part of this gateway project that will be a legacy for generations to come. You may donate online or send a check to Arts and Culture El Dorado, PO Box 2400 Placerville CA, 95667. Please indicate "Camino Roundabout" in the memo line of the check.
