The wind, sun and snow of Vail, Colorado forged an energetic kinship with the Hypnartic Artwork Company during an installation display of a trio of its kinetic wind sculpture designs this past October.
Perched 200 feet above the Town of Vail’s village along Potato Patch Road, a Solar Reflections and two Spinning Leaves sculptures harmoniously rotated under a sun-filled sky which immediately appeared following the exit of yellow and white snow flurries. Seemingly endless picturesque scenery encompassing snow-capped mountains, yellow fall foliage, vast horizon and sky provided a remarkably stunning backdrop during the planned visit.
The exceptional natural beauty easily exceeded the expectations of the Hypnartic Artwork Company’s staff who selected the self-described North America’s Premier International Mountain Resort Community as a destination site as part of its recent Wind Sculptures Across America Tour where making stops in scenic American cities and towns. To date, Hypnartic Artwork has traveled from its corporate offices in Jamestown, Rhode Island, to Sedona, Arizona, Santa Fe, NM, Evergreen, Denver and Vail, Colo., Kansas City and St. Louis, Mo., Cambridge, MA; and Kennubunkport, Maine.
The relatively young yet immensely popular and well visited Vail Mountain Ski Resort boasts an approximate elevation of 8,150 feet above sea level. Its first-rate trail and course conditions has long attracted skiers and tourists from near and far since it first opened in 1962.
Four years later, the Town of Vail became incorporated expanding the amount of land for visitors to explore for recreational and passive use. The town of Vail spans 4.5 square miles. It is surrounded by the White River National Forest and the Vail Mountain Ski Resort which it leases from the United States Forest Service. In 2010, population of the Town of Vail was estimated at 5,305.
During its fall visit, Hypnartic Artwork installed a second display of its Spinning Leaves kinetic wind sculpture design at the base of Vail Mountain along the roundabout located along South Frontage Road West. While there, the stainless steel design spun without interruption as it captured available breezes to the delight of curious passersby.
