“May the wind under your wings bear you where the sun sails and the moon walks.” ~ J. R. R. Tolkien
On a sunny, windy day my brother Dwight and I zoomed up to visit the Wind, Waves and Light exhibition at the Lewis Ginter Botanical Garden in Richmond, VA. Come join me today for a look-see…
We thoroughly enjoyed the extraordinary exhibit designed by sculptor George Sherwood, who holds degrees in both engineering and art. Each stainless steel kinetic sculpture captures light and moves with the wind in ways reflective of the natural world around us.
This “Surf” sculpture captured the light and kept spinning around like a school of fish. (My brother, who maintains two fish tanks at home, really liked this one!)
When viewed from the other side fiery colors popped out. Again, COOL!
Hope you enjoyed this tour of these amazing art-in-motion sculptures. Still photographs can’t quite capture how cool it was – especially on a windy day – to experience the constant movement and explosions of color. But, you can get a general idea!
grace, peace & Moving Art
