But God made the earth by his power; he founded the world by his wisdom and stretched out the heavens by his understanding. When he thunders, the waters in heaven roar; he makes the clouds rise from the ends of the earth. He sends lightning with the rain and brings out the wind from his storehouses. (NIV) (Jeremiah 10: 12,13)


According to the brochure, the sculpture artist designed these 13 kinetic sculptures to explore space, time and relationship of objects in motion. It was a sunny day with a moderate wind the day I was there. I observed these sculptures have interesting patterns of motion, colors, reflections and movements and they were always changing. Now I know why the artist named this exhibit, "Wind, Waves, and Light." If you want to find more about these sculptures, you can check them out on the internet. Better yet--I think it is worth a trip to the Reiman Gardens to see them for yourself.


First and foremost--you receive a friendly greeting from Cy (above left) each time you visit the Reiman Gardens on the Iowa State University Campus, Ames, Iowa. Then step inside and enjoy this year's sculpture exhibit, "Wind, Waves, and Light" by artist George Sherwood.
