  • Overview

    Wind, Waves & Light will be the major annual exhibit for Reiman Gardens in 2018, coinciding perfectly with the Gardens’ annual theme of “movement”. The Wind, Waves & Light exhibit will be at the Gardens until November 3 and features 11 sculptures designed to explore space, time, and the dynamic relationship of objects in motion.

    The choreography of each piece is governed by a set of basic movements, facilitated by an arrangement of aerodynamic surfaces connected by rotational points. The sculptures are made of stainless steel, and the reflective qualities integrate each sculpture into its environment. Wind speed and direction, shades of light, time of day, precipitation, and seasonal color transform the qualities of light and movement of the sculptures.

    George Sherwood, an award-winning American sculptor, was born and raised in the coastal town of Fairfield, Connecticut. He now lives and works in Ipswich, Massachusetts, and holds degrees in both art and engineering.
