Long Description:
"This is Black Dancer, located on our #MayoClinicFL campus in Jacksonville, Florida. This piece of art, created by Robert Perless of Connecticut in 1978, is a gift from long time patients and benefactors Mr. and Mrs. Rawleigh Warner of Hobe Sound, FL. It's subtle movements are inspired by Mr. Perless' desire to "call attention to the mysteries that surround us but often go unseen".

The piece swivels on that stand, depending the wind patterns at the time."

--Mayo Clinic Instagram (visit link)

Robert Perless' "... works are created in his large Greenwich studio adjacent to his home, using state of the art equipment and industrial materials. The streamlined works which are razor sharp in appearance, are kinetic pieces calibrated to shift and move in the breeze."
