"Elements" by San Antonio artist James Hetherington is a kinetic sculpture located at the John Igo Library. The 40 foot-tall galvanized steel windmill greets visitors and goes well with the rustic architecture and rural surroundings. This non-traditional hybrid windmill harvests power from the intermittent wind source, and through a generator, provides supplemental power to a small water pump, allowing the water to flow down a channel and through the building to a water basin.
