Completion and dedication

The Compassion Bench is a functional art sculpture/public bench located on Compassion Corner in Downtown Davis. It is the brainchild of "Compassion Guy" David Breaux.

David got permission from AT&T (who owns the property) and organized volunteers to build a cob "compassion bench" there. The bench was designed by cob master Brennan Bird. The ceramic inlay art is by locally famous ceramic tile artists Donna Billick and Mark Rivera.
