Wings of the City

September 9, 2015 - June 5, 2016

The Mexican Consulate in San Antonio is proud to present the “Wings of the City” sculpture exhibit by world-renowned Mexican Artist Jorge Marín. “Wings of the City” is an urban art project that consists of eight monumental sculptures, including the main piece titled “Wings of the City,” featuring a pair of bronze wings.  The exhibit will be on display at the Botanical Garden from September 9, 2015 – June 5, 2016.  “Wings of the City” became part of Mexico’s artistic scenery as it made its tour through cities such as Morelia, Tampico, Ciudad Victoria, Saltillo, Torreon, and Campeche among others for over three years. In 2013, the U.S. tour began with Brownsville, Houston, Dallas, Fort Worth, and now San Antonio. An additional sculpture will go on display at the Southwest School of Art in Fall 2015.
