Wind Sculpture II by Yinka Shonibare
Known for his figurative sculptures that use Dutch wax cloth (popular throughout Africa) to explore cultural identity, Yinka Shonibare here, at the North Carolina Museum of Art, Raleigh, transforms a wisp of the same fabric into a playfully monumental sculpture that captures the wind like a giant sail.
Paignton Harbor Beaches
Paignton beach and the nearby Preston Sands, which are continuous at low tide, are used for water sports including kite surfing and dinghy sailing. Both are sandy and gently shelving and have no strong currents, making them popular with swimmers and families. Both have green spaces immediately inland. Paignton Green has a pirate-themed Adventure Golf course and the Paignton Geoplay Park, a children’s play area, which has the area’s geology as its theme, inspired by the UNESCO Global Geopark of which Paignton is a part.
