"Subtile" Shimmering on the Sacramento River

"Subtile" created by Czech artist Federico Diaz.  This kinetic sculpture shimmers and shakes along the river bank in West Sacramento and is coated with more than 34,000 stainless steel disks. It measures 26 feet long, 20 feet high and 6 feet wide.  While I stood mesmerized by this beautiful art piece,  the wind came up and the sculpture's sound and movement reminded me of the Quaking Aspens we loved when I was a kid growing up in Idaho. Take a walk on the river walk soon...
