Event Description

Presented by Public Art Fund, Wind Sculpture (SG) I (2018), is a new sculpture by British-Nigerian artist Yinka Shonibare MBE. The 23-foot-tall, hand painted, fiberglass sculpture is reminiscent of a untethered sail of a ship and continues Shonibare’s ongoing examination of the construction of cultural identity through the lens of colonialism.
