New sculpture installed at Waller Delta

Tuesday, May 23, 2017 by Nina Hernandez

Two sculptures by Chinese artist Ai Weiwei will be unveiled next month at a public opening and family day. The free event, to be held on Saturday, June 3, at the Waller Delta, 74 Trinity St., is hosted by the Contemporary Austin museum and Waller Creek Conservancy as part of the Museum Without Walls program – an effort to engage the community with art outside the traditional museum facility. Weiwei’s Forever Bicycles (which represent freedom and status) will be on display near the boathouse. Open to families, the event will include free refreshments and art activities. Iron Tree Trunk, another Weiwei piece, can be found at the Contemporary Austin’s Betty and Edward Marcus Sculpture Park at Laguna Gloria, 3806 W. 35th St. Admission there will also be free.
