Whirlwind: Art in Motion

April 21 is Opening Day of Whirlwind: Art in Motion; a kinetic art exhibit at the Overland Park Arboretum & Botanical Gardens. Kinetic art is a unique art form using 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.” Kinetic tours will be available beginning May 1, 2018. Exhibit will be on display through Fall 2019.
