crank whimsy is a set of sculptures for the 1% art for Rodgers Park Elementary made by Arthur Higgins. This is the plauge on one of the moving sculptures, it say who made it, and what year it was made in. Scroll down and you will see pictures of the other moving sculptures at Rodgers Park.

In this photo is an eagle and a catipiliar. You can see

a little bit of the crank that moves the sculpture. When

you turn the crank for the eagle, it make its body and

wings move up and down, making it look like its flying.

When you turn the crank for the catilipiliar, it makes it

look like its moving on a flat surface.

Here is a photo of a cricket. Instead of having a

crank to make it move, it has wheels. When you move the right

wheel for the chricket, it make the crickets sides and legs move.

In this photo, there is a big fish, and a bunch of little fish.

This sculpture also has to be moved my turning the right

wheel. When you turn it, the sculpture moves, making the

big fishes jaws move up and and down, and the little fishes

tails move to make it look like their swimming away.

We took many more

See what you are missing

And work with this more.
