Shelton, Nebraska: Bicentennial Wind Sculpture

Artist George Baker sculpted a stainless steel array of wind-movable disks in a pond as part of Nebraska's 1976 celebration of the US Bicentennial. Guess someone paddles over with an oil can once a year....
I-80 W., Shelton, NE
I-80 westbound rest area at milepost 270, two miles west of exit 272. In the pond just north of the parking lot.

Nebraska Wind Sculpture

I-80 westbound rest stop sculpture in a pond. Nice place to walk the kids and air out the car.

Work of sculptor George Baker, the stainless steel installation was made for the Bicentennial in 1976. Good spot to catch wind.
