Wind Sculpture VII
Commissioned from internationally renowned artist Yinka Shonibare MBE, the installation of Wind Sculpture VII at the entrance to our museum promises to mark a new landmark of public art on the National Mall. The ship-sail shapes of Shonibare’s Wind Sculpure series, painted to appear like his trademark wax-print cloth material, evoke cross-continental connections—in history, in trade, in politics, in ideas, and in contemporary art.
Opening in 2017, the museum is transforming its largest gallery into a showcase permanently dedicated to works of art from its world-class collection. This new exhibition promises to be a thoughtful and beautiful experience featuring masterworks from ancient to contemporary times. Watch this space for more information and details soon.
