Tucson's Kinetic Art Scene ~ Mat Bevel Institute

Weird and fun and provocative, the Mat Bevel Institute is a Tucson art treasure. The outside courtyard of the institute looks like a cross between a wind farm and a junk yard. The sculptural art pieces are created from found objects ~ a bicycle tire, a tractor seat, a TV antenna ~ and they all move in different ways. A strong breeze gets everything going at once - fun!

  1. Not only does it look interesting, but I imagine it sounds interesting as well! A rather belated welcome to the CDP community, glad you're here.

  2. Hi Shadow,
    Thank you for your nice welcome! I am delighted to find the CDP community and look forward to hearing from everyone who wants to drop me a line.

  3. That does sound like great fun! Very creative.

  4. We have included your blog in our guide Around The World.

    The guide is both a record of old blogs and a listing of new blogs. Although originally arising from the "City Daily Photo Blog" lists this is an independent publication. Inclusion here does not imply that a blog qualifies for nor is officially a CDPB. Our criteria are that photographs mainly from and related to a specific geographical location (not necessarily a "city" but usually more specific than a whole country or region) are posted at dated intervals (not necessarily daily) and archives are kept which are readily searchable by date.

    Please keep us informed of any changes to your details.
