Veterans Take Part in "Kinetic Intentions" Mobile Making Art Project

Sunday, Nov. 13, 2016, 1:00 - 2:30 p.m. & 3:00 - 4:30 p.m. 

Art Sea Living Studio, 112 S. Federal Hwy., Boynton Beach The City of Boynton Beach’s Art in Public Places has commissioned artist Elayna Toby Singer to create a community kinetic tree art project called “Kinetic Intentions” from upcycled items, such as fishing line and tree seed pods.

Three free community workshops have been held to create mini-mobiles, which will be combined into the largest temporary kinetic tree installation in Palm Beach County. The mobiles, along with participant’s written intentions, will be suspended from trees to create a curtained “room”. The project will be unveiled during the International Kinetic Art Exhibit & Symposium held Feb. 3 - 5, 2017.

An additional workshop will be held in the city on Sunday, Nov. 13. The public is invited to attend one of two time periods during the day: 1:00 to 2:30 p.m. or 3:00 p.m. to 4:30 p.m. Twelve veterans from Stand Down House in West Palm Beach and Commissioner Christina Romelus will participate in the first time period.

Children, 13 and older, are invited to attend. Kinetic art is art that moves with the help of wind, light, water or other elements.
