Wind Sculptures in Motion: The Kinetic Art of Lyman Whitaker

Presented by Reliant

April 15-July 31


This spectacular hand-crafted Kinetic Art of Lyman have arrived at the Dallas Arboretum this spring! Whitaker is the most recognized creator of kinetic art, and his copper wind spinners are mesmerizing juxtaposed with the beautiful gardens.


Each piece of artwork, driven by the wind, is organic in nature and dependent upon its natural surroundings to provide their movement. The sculptures range in height from 5 to 27 feet tall and will be arranged in groupings throughout the garden for viewing. Whitaker says, “The garden is a perfect venue for my pieces. Since they are derived from plant forms, they feel at home among plants.”

The exhibition is made possible by Leopold Gallery, which represents Lyman Whitaker and is handling purchases with a portion benefiting the Dallas Arboretum. Shop Here.
