Wind-powered folk art has blown into Surrey Museum for the autumn months.
"Wind Work, Wind Play" features weathervanes and whirligigs from the collection of the Canadian Museum of Civilization. Showcased are more than 30 pieces of functional and decorative folk art of the 1870s to the 1970s.
Weathervanes have been part of the Canadian landscape for centuries, perched atop many barn roofs, church steeples and homes. Whirligigs, on the other hand, are wind-driven lawn ornaments created purely to amuse and entertain.
The exhibit continues until Dec. 21 at the museum, at 17710 56A Ave.
