The Barrel Monster artist has struck again - this time with a giant sword-wielding knight made of street signs that now will be a permanent fixture at Cameron Village.
N.C. State senior Joe Carnevale caused quite a stir last year when he erected a giant monster made of construction barrels along the highway. His renown spread nationwide when he was sentenced to 50 hours community service for misdemeanor charges of larceny and damage to property.
Since then, he's created several masterpiece monsters, including one that's perched atop a building along Hillsborough Street in front of the N.C. State Campus.
The Street Knight was crafted for an Earth Day celebration at Cameron Village in April. It was to spend two weeks there, but merchants and officials of the village opted to make it permanent.
