Linda and I finally made it out to see Jorge’s Marín’s “Wings of the City” exhibit at the Anaheim Convention Center! We even managed to drag a (camera-shy) friend along!
This collection of sculptures has been on display at the Convention Center since July 11th. Little did I know, we were waiting for a free parking day before going to see it.
(I suspect the weather, and maybe laziness, played into our waiting for the very last one.)
The sculptures, themselves, were wonderful, imposing and detailed. But my favorite thing about them was that they were touchable. I was able to touch Bernardo‘s hands, held–as they were–behind his back, which was strange, but cool.
I didn’t touch any part of Hombre Universal.
If you’d like to see the exhibit before it leaves Anaheim, you’d better get a move on! The Convention Center exhibit closes on September 30th! And who doesn’t want to see Archivaldo? (Lomo, or no Lomo, Archivaldo is beautiful.)
If you’d like to learn more about the exhibit, click on through to the “Wings of the City” page at Visit Anaheim.
