Sixth See Art Orlando Sculpture Moves With the Wind at Lake Eola Park

Union 2

The sixth See Art Orlando is installed Lake Eola Park. The newest installation is located on Robinson St and Eola Drive across from Panera [GMap].

The statue stand 25 feet tall and is a wind-driven kinetic stainless steel/aluminum sculpture. Multiple “wings” move in unpredictable fashion in this large assembly. The sculpture is titled “Union” and is by artist Ralfonso Gschwend.

You can also see the new grass that’s part of the other park improvements the City is making at Lake Eola this month.

Eight total sculptures will be part of the See Art Orlando unveiling in November [Event Info].

The other five  sculptures that have already been installed are:

The sculptures are being paid for by private donors. You can see a map of the eight locations here.

Here’s a closer picture of Union:

I don't think $0 is to extreme. :) I just confirmed that the City is paying nothing for the lighting at the sculptures.

I have an email out and will post the actual lighting/installation costs the city is incurring. My understanding is they aren't installing a new system but are using the existing one for the Lake Eola Fountain. If it has an app then great.

Hi Thomas, where did you get the $700,000 number from?

nonsense. and i was informed that our egocentric mayor spent in excess of $700,000.00 on the lighting system. by the way, that included an app for his phone to have personal control of each lighting system. how insulting.
