Windmills as Free Art

Eatontonyardart

Where but in the South, I ask you, could you just drive down the road and see something so colorful and so joyously unexpected as windmills constructed of bicycle rims and and fan blades? I spotted these while cruising through Eatonton, GA, and they made me turn my rental car around. They were unattended, keeping company with a satellite dish and a sign proclaiming the art  – and that’s what they are – could be had for a price. Nobody was home when I knocked, leaving me only speculation about the stroke of genius that led to the creation of these serene beauties, spinning silently in the gentle early fall breeze, circles inside circles.

    How absolutely delightful! Kind of remind me of a deconstructed kaleidoscope.
