(Time) – This highly detailed figure is incomplete. Despite his fractured body, he spreads his wings in the air and the expression on his face is full of determination. Consider the title of the work. What message does this piece have for you? – from Wings of the City, Self Guided Tour. This piece was exhibited at Fort Worth Water Gardens, overlooking the cascading water down the terraces and steps of the Active Pool and the Texas A&M University School of Law.

(Monumental Embrace) – This sculpture represents a winged man embracing a woman in a charged moment full of hope and compassion. Do you think art often evokes strong emotions in the viewer? Why or why not? Be sure to walk all the way around the piece to admire the detail in the wings. – from Wings of the City, Self Guided Tour.  This one of three bronze sculptures by Jorge Marin which were exhibited at Fort Worth Water Garden, this summer. This part of the water garden is called The Mountain. #ShowyourWingsFW

Wings of the City – Archivaldo

Architecture, Black and White, Texas

Post 3 of 5

“(Archivaldo) – This winged figure fixes his gaze directly in front of him. Consider where this figure is placed, in front of the Fort Worth Convention center. What is this piece’s relationship with the architecture? Does he complement the space?” – from Wings of the City, Self Guided Tour. Archivaldo is placed in front of the Fort Worth Convention Center, North Entrance, by General Worth Square, downtown Fort Worth, Tx. It is gazing towards the direction of Alas de México (see the last photo).

Wings of the City – Alas de México

Architecture, Black and White, Texas

Eight bronze figures created by the internationally acclaimed contemporary sculptor from Mexico, Jorge Marin, are now exhibited in downtown Fort Worth, Texas, until the end of August 2015.  I captured five out of the eight sculptures.  This one is titled “Alas de México” or “Wings of Mexico” and placed at the Sundance Square Plaza. “It encourages interaction by allowing visitors to see, touch and take pictures with the sculpture. Thousands of people around the world have had their portraits taken with the wings.” #ShowyourWingsFW
