Wings of the City

Presented by TowneBank

Raleigh welcomes world-renowned Mexican artist Jorge Marín’s traveling exhibition, Wings of the City to Dorothea Dix Park this October through March 2022. The collection of nine bronze sculptures features larger than life figures – some winged and poised to take flight, others delicately balanced in acrobatic poses.

For the first time since starting its international journey in 2013, Jorge Marín’s Wings of the City will be accompanied with dialogue that includes the Mexican indigenous language, Purépecha. 

Wings of the City exhibition in Raleigh 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.
