Quilted Rock.

Quilted Rock

A huge and colorfully painted boulder makes the entrance to the Stoneco Quarry. The improbably bright colors stick out like a sore thumb against the neutral shades of farmland near Celina. Behind the boulder is a giant piece of equipment mounted for display, although I'm not knowledgeable enough to identify it. There is a small pull-off area at the side of the road for a quick, safe photo-op.

The rock was originally a boundary marker that had become a target for graffiti. Local artist Brenda Robinson transformed it into Quilted Rock in 2014, similar in spirit to Ugo Rondinone's day-glo rocks.
