Wind Sculpture (SG) I is the latest in a series of large fibreglass works the artist began creating in 2013, stretching 23 feet tall. The sculpture made its New York debut in March this year; brought to Central Park by the Public Art Fund. Through the generous support of Pat Rodgers, the sculpture will make its way to be permanently installed at Davidson College in front of the E. Craig Wall Jr. Academic Center.
The Wall Center, which Rodgers Builders constructed, not only serves as premier real estate on campus for Shonibare's work, but connects strikingly to the ideas behind the piece and to Rodgers' motivation in bringing it to campus. The centre's cross-pollination of physical and social sciences, and humanities underscores Davidson's trans-disciplinary emphasis in re-imagining the liberal arts experience.Back to news
