Rainbow Spring sculpture unveiled in Bentonville


The City of Bentonville unveiled it’s first technology-enabled interactive art piece today.

The piece, titled Rainbow Spring, was created by Fayetteville maker Eugene Sargent, and an unveiling ceremony was held at the entrance to Lawrence Plaza. 

Rainbow Spring consists of a series of acrylic tubes with LED light strips inside.

When activated, the LED lights mathematically replicate the physics of gravity, inviting people to play with the sculpture and explore the casual relationship between the lights and sensors.

“Public art matters,” said Sam Dean, Scott Family Amazeum executive director. “This idea that you can explore your environment, the environment can react to you, is an important part of civic infrastructure.”

The art piece was made possible through a partnership with Bentonville Parks and Recreation, the Public Arts Advisory Committee, Visit Bentonville and the Amazeum.
