Wind & Whimsy: Weathervanes and Whirligigs from Twin Cities Collections

Minneapolis Institute of Art


Weathervanes have adorned rooftops and towers since ancient times, dependably and often amusingly indicating which way the wind blows. In Wind and Whimsy, renowned cultural historian Karal Ann Marling traces the history, literature, and lore of these utilitarian yet whimsical objects, focusing on their role in American popular culture. Accompanying her illustrated essay is a selection of more than 60 plates, offering superbly detailed full-color views of prime weathervanes and whirligigs from the Minneapolis Institute of Arts and private collections in the Twin Cities.
