EL PASO – Next time you drive through UTEP's new roundabout on campus, don't be surprised when you notice a 25-foot tall sculpture of a pickaxe sitting in the middle of it.

The sculpture, made by Denver-based artist Michael Clapper, will be dedicated during a ceremony this Friday at 10:30 in the morning.

UTEP says the pickaxe is made from steel and will be illuminated at night by LED lights on the ends.
