The Windmill Project: Suspended
Center for the Arts Courtyard
October 11 – April 2019
Artist Talk: Thursday, October 11, 12-1PM
Opening Reception: Friday, October 12, 5:30-7PM
Patrick Marold’s Windmill Project is a landscape-based installation that directly renders the behavior of wind into a living body of light. The Windmill Project will be on display in the Center Courtyard, October 12-April 2019.
During the week of October 8-12, Marold will suspend approximately 200 light generating windmills in the open space of the courtyard. These windmills will form a gently rising shape that rotates and reflects daylight during the day and casts light during the evening.
Patrick Marold, a native of Colorado, has been working as an artist and primarily a sculptor since earning a BFA from Rhode Island School of Design in 1997. From the very beginning, his artistic development has maintained an intimate connection to landscape, extending the environmental traditions unique to post-minimalism. Refinement of his practice has been pursued in various locations in America and abroad, including an apprenticeship under Andy Goldsworthy.
