Public Art

This sculpture in Fort Pierce, FL was constructed on the site from recycled metal brought in by members of the community.  The top structure acts as a vane, turning in the wind.  On the front of the vane is a propeller which powers a battery that runs lights to light up the globe.  On the top of the vane are solar powered lights which also light the sculpture.  The words on either side say FT PIERCE FL.  The sculpture was built in one weekend as part of the Green event that was held by A. E. Backus Museum. The artist is Patrick Cochran.
