SAN ANTONIO BOTANICAL GARDEN SHOWCASES BRONZE SCULPTURES AS PART OF MEXICO CULTURAL OUTREACH

Thanks to a collaboration of the Consulate General of Mexico in San Antonio and the City of San Antonio, the San Antonio Botanical Garden will welcome the bronze sculptures of internationally renowned Mexican artist Jorge Marín in an exhibit opening Sept. 9.

This urban art project invites the public to interact with the eight large-scale bronze sculptures on display at the Garden until Feb.14, 2016. A ninth sculpture will be on display at the Southwest School of Art.

For the past 25 years, these contemporary sculptures have traveled throughout the world as cultural outreach from Mexico. Now they’re traveling the United States, with their journey beginning in Texas. First shown in Brownsville, then Houston, Dallas and Fort Worth, the exhibit moves to San Antonio in early September. 
A favorite among the eight sculptures will no doubt be the one which gives the exhibit its name, Wings of the City.
