Let Love Guide Your Way”by Lloyd Goradesky

 

What is Kinetic Art? Kinetic Art is a form of art that depends on movement for its effect. The word kinetic means relating to motion. Since the early 20th Century, artists have been incorporating movement into art. This has been partly to explore the possibilities of movement, partly to introduce the element of time, partly to reflect the importance of the machine and technology in the modern world and partly to explore the nature of vision.

“Reflections” by Ralfonso

 

 

 

“Kinetic Art Exhibit attracts artists and celebrates kinetic art, branding the City as a premier arts destination,” said Eleanor Krusell, Director of Marketing & Events for the City of Boynton Beach. “This year’s exhibit will attract families and art patrons to Boynton Beach.”

 

The outdoor installations are accessed via an easy-to-walk self-guided tour. During opening weekend, the FREE public event will take place on Saturday, March 6th, 9:00 a.m. – 6:00 p.m. and Sunday, March 7th, 11:00 a.m. – 3:00 p.m.

 

Highlights during this year’s event include an unveiling of world-renowned kinetic sculptor Ralfonso’s piece “Reflections”. This gateway feature for the City’s Town Square redevelopment project is located at the North East corner of E Ocean Ave. and Seacrest Blvd. The 27’ high sculpture features twenty-one 3ʹ to 11’ long bird-like wings that rotate in the wind. Fabricated by EES Designs, this stainless-steel artwork reflects nature by day and is colorfully lit at night. The wings intersect, representing the City’s diversity and unity. Three Zen-shaped seating walls provide sculpture viewing and a community- gathering place.

 

Additionally, “Synesthesia” by Donald Gialanella located at 120 E. Ocean Ave., will also be unveiled in November 2020. This artwork plaza is interactive during the day, engaging all generations and abilities with vibrant sounds and surface reflections. At night, it emits ambiance with soothing sounds and ever-changing light.
