di Rosa Center for Contemporary Art Recieves National Endowment for Humanities Grant (Blog Post)
Title: di Rosa Center for Contemporary Art Recieves National Endowment for Humanities Grant
Author: Robin Bernhard
Abstract: The grant will allow di Rosa to restore Wind House (2003), a site-specific outdoor kinetic sculpture by Sebastopol-based artist Ned Kahn. Kahn is an internationally renowned environmental artist and sculptor — known for his work harnessing natural elements such as fire and light, fog, sand, water and wind — augmenting visibility and creating new ways to experience the world around us. Ironically, the wind-animated sculpture, which creates a gossamer suggestion of a building completely permeated by the atmosphere, was damaged by the 2017 Northern California wildfires.
