Arts & Entertainment, General

There’s still time to catch the Wings of the City art exhibit by Jorge Marín at the Discovery Green Park. This free art installation is on display throughout the park until Tuesday, March 3, 2015. The exhibit was set up “to offer Houstonians a place to gather, reflect and celebrate acclaimed international art.”

According to Wikipedia, Jorge Marín was born in Uruapan, Michoacán, Mexico. He is a sculptor and painter. He has been an active figure in the contemporary art world for the last 25 years. He began to sculpt ceramic in the early 1980s. Bronze has been his preferred material for the last ten years. His work often depicts horses, centaurs, garudas, children, madonnas, acrobats, along with elements such as spheres, masks, arrows, boats and scales. These concepts are consistent with recurring themes such as reflection and balance.
