Debby Coles-Dobay Public Arts Manager, Boynton Beach, FL
This kinetic sculpture, selected by the city of Boynton Beach's public art system, is sited in front of the Schoolhouse Children's Museum.
This sculpture illustrates concepts of motion and balance, and is intended to prompt questions about the mechanics involved, the play of light, and the constantly changing composition.
The artist, Lin Emery, designed the prototype and model, along with detailed drawings and then supervised the construction with two professional welders and machinists. Debby Coles-Dobay, Public Art Manager for the City of Boynton Beach, chose the location in front of the Schoolhouse Children's Museum, and directed the installation.
The sculpture is featured in the International Kinetic Art Exhibition and Symposium, planned as a biennial event in Boynton Beach, FL, www.intlkineticartevent.org. It is one of 16 kinetic artworks sited in Boynton Beach FL for the year long outdoor exhibit.

[ manifesto ]
Art matters. Attention to the details of our environment leads to love of place, which brings us to take responsibility for the spaces where we live and work. And by extension, the people with whom we live and work. And by extension, to our local communities, our cities, our nations, and our world.
We champion the role of artists in our society. We need artists to provide us with inspiration, creativity, and imagination, and to help us envision a better world.
Architects and designers know that remarkable design can change everything. They connect the dots across disciplines, collaborating with artists to make the world a more beautiful place. They are the ultimate patrons of the arts.
In the process, design professionals promote imagination and creativity, and through their commissions, make original art integral to and accessible in people's lives.
Art in our public and private spaces helps us fight ordinary buildings, ordinary streets, ordinary cities. We celebrate the extraordinary.
The architecture of our buildings and the design of our interiors affect our happiness and well-being. Each of us deserves a daily dose of inspiration.
