Yinka Shonibare's Wind Sculpture (SG)




There is currently a twenty-three foot tall fiber-glass sculpture known as Wind Sculpture (SG), which was created by Yinka Shonibare (a British-Nigerian artist), that can be found at at the southeast entrance to Central Park (on the Doris C. Freedman Plaza). It will be there until October 14, 2018.

Partial views of Shonibare's sculpture can be seen in the photographs atop this entry. As you can see by looking in the lower right hand corner of the last picture, a lone pigeon (indicated by an arrow that I've affixed to my photograph) is fascinated by it.

Like this lone pigeon, dear reader, I think you too will fascinated by this work of art, as well as the backstory of the process its creator, Yinka Shonibare (who can be seen in the next picture) goes through to achieve his results.


Therefore, in lieu of my publishing my musings on this masterpiece, please allow me to direct you to an article from untapped cities (where I got this photo of Shonibare); as well as to an article that was published in The Guardian, and also to a page on Wikipedia for further information.
