NEWPORT BEACH SCULPTURE IN CIVIC CENTER PARK EXHIBITION 2018-2019

“Cosmic Glints” by Patricia Vader is one of nine new sculptures installed at the park.

This kinetic wind-driven metal sculpture utilizes mostly upcycled materiaIs in its structure, including bicycle wheels and reflectors. The wheel circle is held together by compression and the largest wheels are bolted to the central motorcycle rim. The smaller wheels spin freely. The colorful, playful sculpture captures the elements of its environment, utilizing the ocean breezes for movement and sparkling sunlight to create glints of light that bounce off the moving aluminum disks.
