In honor of the 209th anniversary of the independence of Mexico and National Hispanic Heritage Month, the Clinton Presidential Center is welcoming a new exhibit. "José Sacal: A Universal Mexican" will feature 21 works of the contemporary sculpture artist.
Sacal’s work has been showcased in more than 40 individual exhibitions and dozens of collaborations in Mexico and around the world. In 2006, he became the first Mexican to have his sculpture art permanently displayed in China. Today, more than 20 Sacal sculptures can be found in public spaces across Mexico, Israel and the U.S., including Los Angeles and Washington, D.C.
The 21 sculptures featured in the exhibit comprise two series: The Paraphrase, inspired by distinguished artists like Michelangelo, Frida Kahlo and Picasso; and Characters of Impact, in which Sacal recreates historical figures like Einstein and Churchill. This collection of sculptures will be displayed on the Clinton Center’s Sky Terrace.
The exhibit will be on display through Oct. 16. For more info, head to the Clinton Center website.
