Archway connector


A new metal archway connecting the two houses of the Nickel Plate Arts Campus, 107 S. 8th St., Noblesville, rolled into place April 5.

The Nickel Plate Archway was designed by Bonnie Ramirez, metal arts sculptor and teacher, and fabricated with the help of Rick Heflin, owner of RC Metalworks.

The arch itself was put on casters and literally rolled down the street to its home at the campus, and the installation crew carried the final piece of the puzzle, a faux train track twisted and polished to catch the sunlight, to the site.

The archway was made possible by a grant from the Indiana Office of Towns in Development and the Office of Community and Rural Affairs.
