Using images of objects and people, artist Tim desClouds has created two sculptures that interpret life in Greely. Each sculpture spins like a whirligig and marks wind direction like a weathervane.
For Tim desClouds, a vibrant community comes from diverse voices speaking out in support of one another. Chairs are a symbol of this support. Other images in the artwork spark conversations and tell stories about the Greely community.
Tim desClouds shares his love of life through art. His process includes research into local culture and community history. He developed this public art project for Greely Village Park alongside a skilled and creative team of engineers, iron workers and welders.
Completed in partnership with Milligan Iron Works.
