Wings of Mexico, the iconic Jorge Marin sculpture, was permanently installed in the Griffith Observatory in the city of Los Angeles. On 6 June 2022, the work was unveiled in one of L.A’s most visited cultural sites.

Perched high on the Hollywood hills, the Griffith is not only one of the most famous astronomical observatories in the world, but is also accessible to all and boasts panoramic views that stretch from the Pacific ocean to the city’s downtown area.

Los Angeles, the second most populated city in the United States, is home to important museums, such as the Getty Center in Brentwood, the Los Angeles County Museum of Art, and The Broad, contemporary art museum, among others.

For the sculptor, Jorge Marin, this location is “a stage that allows reflection on the permanent search for freedom that characterizes our nature as humans”.

“The permanence of Wings of Mexico in the public space has profound meaning. Above all, it is the symbol of various works spread across the world. And it is my greatest desire to contribute to an increasingly solidary and harmonious society, through art”.

The installation was possible thanks to the collaboration of the Consulate General of Mexico in Los Angeles, the City of Los Angeles, and the Jorge Marin Foundation.
