How to make art history in Vail

Daily Staff Report
Vail, CO Colorado

VAIL ” Denver artist Patrick Marold is looking for help next week when he’ll install 2,700 miniature windmills on a hillside near Vail’s golf course.

The windmills will generate enough power to illuminate attached light bulbs. The exhibit, sponsored by Vail’s Art in Public Places program, is meant to show how wind power works.

Volunteers are needed from March 12 to 19 to work two shifts per day, from 9 a.m. to 11 a.m. and 3 p.m. to 5 p.m. Volunteers will meet in the golf course parking lot at the beginning of each shift.

The work will not require heavy lifting because the windmills are lightweight, said Leslie Fordham, Vail’s public art coordinator.

The windmills will spin from March 20 to April 22. For more information contact Fordham at 479-2344 or visit
