Whirlwind: Art in Motion
August 1, 2018
8 a.m.-7:30 p.m.
Join us for Whirlwind: Art in Motion (April 21, 2018-September 30, 2019)
This exciting, engaging, and breathtaking 18 month exhibition of kinetic sculptures at the Overland Park Arboretum and Botanical Gardens. Free with your admission.
Kinetic art is a unique art form utilizing the environment to enhance the aesthetic experience for the viewer. Participating artist Lin Emery aptly described the artistry of kinetic sculpture when she said, “Elements are derived from nature, and I borrow natural elements — wind, water, magnets — to set them in motion. The rhythms are influenced by infinite variables: the points of balance, the normal frequency of each form, the interruption of the counterpoise. I juggle, juxtapose, and adjust to achieve the dance or pantomime that I want.”
