Ai Weiwei’s “Circle of Animals/Zodiac Heads” is coming to Denver’s Civic Center Park
It’s exactly what it sounds like.
The Sea Lion Fountain at Civic Center Park is getting an internationally known art installation for October: Ai Weiwei’s “Circle of Animals/Zodiac Heads.”
It’s exactly what it sounds like.
The 12 bronze sculptures are each about 5 feet tall and 2,000 pounds. They’ll be installed from 10 to 11 a.m. on Oct. 3 and remain in Civic Center Park through the end of the month.
The sculptures’ time in Denver is part of a multi-year tour that has since 2010 brought Weiwei’s work to São Paulo, Miami, Toronto, Boston, Taipei, Mexico City, London, New York, Prague, Vienna and more.
