Arts InSight: ‘WINGS’ Over Houston

Angels invade Discovery Green in the form of 9 bronze sculptures.

This week, a series of bronze sculptures by Mexican artist Jorge Marín landed among the pathways of Discovery Green. The artworks often feature angelic figures with idealized male forms and are meant to “spark dialogue around themes of desire, will and determination”. One of the sculptures in the series named “Wings of the City“, is a pair of enormous bronze wings with steps in front, and it is designed for ‘selfies’. So when facebook friends’ profile pics start sprouting wings, there is a good chance that they were taken here.

The exhibition runs through February 8, 2015.

The sculptures will also be featured on the program Arts InSight on September 25 at 7pm on TV 8.
