Colorful tiles turn former San Angelo firetruck into artwork

Firetruck San Angelo

SAN ANGELO, Texas (AP) — Some new art in a West Texas park has wheels and was previously used to help save lives.

Organizers say more than two dozen people took turns placing thousands of colorful tiles on a retired firetruck to create artwork for a San Angelo park dedicated to emergency responders.

The San Angelo Standard-Times ( ) reports the mosaic firetruck was unveiled Wednesday at Firefighter’s Memorial City Park. Some San Angelo city workers and current firefighters were part of the project affiliated with the group Art in Uncommon Places.

The vehicle was driven by Fire Chief Alvin “Tom” Biggs of the San Angelo Fire Department from 1941 to 1964. The donated truck carries a plaque dedicated to Biggs.
