Experience the Vollis Simpson Whirligig Park:
Where Art and Science Are Spun as One
Imagine a place where vibrant color, dynamic motion, and rhythmic sound dazzle the senses, a public park and outdoor museum where local community and international visitors alike can gather around the iconic, monumental, wind-powered sculptures of world-renowned artist and engineer Vollis Simpson. This one-of-a-kind art park in the heart of Historic Downtown Wilson, NC will provide fascinating artistic, educational, and recreational opportunities at the intersection of art and science. We invite you to explore our vision and to join the effort to realize this significant creative placemaking and arts-driven economic development project.
Help us make this vision a reality. Phase 1 of the park is underway and is scheduled to be complete by end of Summer 2014.. Your donation will help us reach our goal of completing the park. Donations are fully tax-deductible.
