‘Mining Minds’

‘Mining Minds’

Where: Roundabout at University Avenue and Sun Bowl Drive

Artist: Michael Clapper, Denver

About: The 25-foot tall steel pickaxe lights up at night and is illuminated in blue and orange on special occasions. The pickaxe represents the university’s roots as a mining school; and its perforated ones and zeros symbolize the modern binary code that roughly mean ‘believe in yourself and UTEP.’
