      Vernal Equinox Viewing Party with Patrick Zentz: cycle(s)
      Times: 1:30 PM

      Location: Missoula Art Park
      Stop by the Missoula Art Park for a last view of Zentz’s remarkable sculpture, cycle(s), as it completes its full cycle of the seasons. Throughout his life, Zentz has been expansive in his practice but singular in his dedication to making instruments of perception. This artwork locates the viewer at a particular place and time.

      Zentz mathematically coordinated the placement of discs on the ground to mark high noon on the solstices and equinoxes, with adjustments made to take into consideration Missoula’s latitude and daylight saving time. The oculus on top of the piece—a bicycle sprocket—aligns with the markers, acting as a solar calendar and marking the changing seasons.
