Whirlwind


This sculpture sits outside the Glendale Public Library and it's called "Whirlwind" created by Gary Slater.  It was purchased by the Glendale Arts Commission as part of it's public arts program.  It really shines when the sun hits it just right.

I have not been to downtown Glendale in a dozen years or so.

I would bet that on a hot summer day you could cook on that sculpture.

Very nice sculpture. I love the 3D layered design on top.

I couldn't help but think of how hot it would be in the sun too!

I like that one.

If you were to come in close, I'll bet you could get some amazing detail shots, including some amazing reflection shots.

Good that Glendale is still buying public art. I don't see too much new public art of significance around here. Money is tight, I guess, and when new public art is in the budget, the people who buy art keep buying politically correct things without much quality (IMHO).

Bravo for the public arts! This looks a little like a hood ornament to me, though.

I'm sure there are some great reflections there.
