    Wings of the City temporary art installation by Jorge Marín comes to Sacramento!

    It's time to spread your wings! The City of Sacramento and Consulate of Mexico are presenting a free outdoor temporary exhibition of nine bronze sculptures by Jorge Marín, a well-known Mexican contemporary artist. One of the pieces, titled "Wings of Mexico," consists of large wings framed where viewers can stand on a pedestal and pose for photos between the wings. The nine sculptures have traveled throughout the world for the past 25 years and most recently were located in Santa Ana. The sculptures will be located on K Street between 11th and 7th Street and on 9th and Capitol Mall. Sacramento will be home to the nine sculptures until November 2019

    Wide Open Walls is the premiere mural festival on the West Coast, attracting artists from all over the world to contribute to Sacramento's vibrant street art scene. Sacramento is already well known as America's Farm to Fork Capital. Wide Open Walls is another facet in the jewel of Sacramento culture.

    This year's mural festival runs from August 8 - 18th.  From past experience I suggest you check it out near the last weekend, after they have had time to paint much of the murals.  Don't wait until it's over though, it's fun to talk with the artists.

    The website is www.wideopenwalls.com

    To see a map of where they will be go to the website or click here.
