UPDATE: Dwyer High School in Gardens will be open Tuesday

Kinetic sculpture in Boynton makes you feel like dancing in the street


David Bowie and Mick Jagger famously sang, “All you need is music. Sweet music,” and on Ocean Avenue that really is all you’ll need to want to dance in the street.

There are two larger than life salsa-dancer kinetic sculptures on display near Hurricane Alley that will likely get you in the mood. They move, or dance, with the wind.

West Palm Beach-artist Beju LeJobart created the kinetic art piece, which is one of about a dozen creations to be displayed on Ocean Avenue in preparation for the city’s International Kinetic Art Exhibit and Symposium in February.

LeJobart’s artwork has one yellow sculpture which is meant to appear as a person twirling the red sculpture, also meant to be a person. The wind spins the red piece, making it appear like it is a person being twirled by a dance partner. To the side on a bench is a third sculpture, meant to be a person sitting and watching the couple dance.

The artist said he came up with the idea because his wife is from Puerto Rico, a place that widely celebrates the Salsa dance.

LeJobart invites the public to sit on the bench and “become a part” of the art, and to also come up with their own story for the piece.
