Interactive sculpture by request in Rutland

Posted: Updated:

Rutland has a new interactive sculpture for families to enjoy.

It's called 'Fishwheel' by artist Oliver Schemm who is also the head of the art department at Castleton State College. The piece features fish that spin around when the wind blows just right and it also has a steering wheel so kids and parents can spin the art themselves.

The Chaffee says interactive art is particularly inspirational.

"Art and interactive art calls to people's creativity and curiosity. It invites, it's a happy experience when people are happy their thoughts are flowing freely, "said Meg Barros of the Chaffee Art Center.

Fishwheel started on display this month and is the second sculpture exhibited in Main Street Park by the Chaffee. They started placing sculptures in the park last year, and this year they responded to the public's request for another.
