Project Description

Sky Waltz

by John Mishler — Goshen, Indiana

Originally Sky Waltz was part of the Sculpture in Park exhibitions.  At the conclusion of its program, the Park added the piece to its permanent collection of sculptures.  The linear shapes of the piece suggest the jet engine trails that are often seen in the sky.  The artist’s sculpture is also kinetic as the top turns in the wind and passes through the stationary part of the piece.  The sculpture is made of textured welded aluminum, much of which has been recycled.  The round aluminum tubes were originally light poles.  Mishler, a nationally renowned sculptor, specializes in using common metals in creating his symbolic and abstract works of art.
