Mel Chin: WAKE Opening Reception

Date: May 21, 2022
Time: 5:30 PM - 8:30 PM
407 N. Liberty - 361-572-0016
An opening reception with the artist will be held from 5:30-8:30pm May 21st, and the sculpture will remain on view daily from 10am-6pm until early autumn 2022.
WAKE is modeled on the structural ribs of the nineteenth-century clipper ship, the USS Nightingale. The ribs rise from the ground and frame a 21-foot-tall figurative sculpture. The carved sculpture, derived from a figurehead from the prow of the Nightingale, represents the opera singer Jenny Lind. Subtle animatronic motions allow her to slowly breathe and scan the sky adds a contemporary upgrade
