Public Art in Zadar, Croatia

Photograph by Cogoli Franco, SIME

As the sun dips below the horizon in Zadar, Croatia, a public art piece called "Greeting to the Sun" lights up in harmony with the waves of the Adriatic and the sounds made by the "Sea Organ." Both art pieces were created by Croatian architect Nikola Bašić. The sun powers the daily light show, thanks to 300 photovoltaic glass panels installed on the waterfront.
