Joining notable cities from across the country and around the globe, Raleigh welcomes world-renowned Mexican artist Jorge Marín’s traveling exhibition, Wings of the City to Dorothea Dix Park.

The collection of nine bronze sculptures features larger than life figures – some winged and poised to take flight, others delicately balanced with gymnast-like prowess – alongside Marín’s iconic Wings of México.

The sculptures will be installed at Dorothea Dix Park October 2021 through March 2022. This will be the first international art exhibition for Raleigh’s burgeoning signature park.

Wings of the City exhibition in North Carolina’s capital is made possible through a partnership between the City of Raleigh, Consulate General of Mexico in Raleigh, Jorge Marín Foundation, and the Dix Park Conservancy.
