Yeah, its not very clear about the dates/length. This website however, seems to imply that it will be here about a year, so leaving around June I'm guessing: https://www.wallercreek.org/archive/major-works-chinese-artist-political-activist-ai-weiwei-coming-austin/ On Mon, Feb 19, 2018 at 8:53

Thanks! We might take a look at it if we make it to that part of the town before the installation is removed (if it would be, as you mentioned). We've been to that part of the city quite a few times since last summer, but I didn't know about it. As far as I can tell, it started last summer,

Thanks Igor. Its hard to get a good angle that doesn't end up looking like a pile of jumbled metal parts. Its located east a little ways from the Congress st. bridge on the downtown side of the river. https://www.wallercreek.org/event/ai-weiweis-forever-bicycles/ On Mon, Feb 19, 2018 at 3:54

Thanks Richard. You should see it in person, I think my eyes got crossed looking at it! When I looked away, it took me a second to be able to focus my eyes. On Mon, Feb 19, 2018 at 3:27 PM, Richard Klein wrote: > I prefer the sky behind you, with the building as the

I couldn't decide either. The dark portion (tree) in the photo with the sky is a bit of a distraction, and in the one with the building in the back, I'd prefer no sky in the background. BTW, where is it? (I assume in Austin, but where?) Igor Gonz Mon, 19 Feb 2018 11:39:06 -0800 wrote:

I prefer the sky behind you, with the building as the background. The sculpture is neat, but it makes me uncomfortable, like my eyes can't focus. On Mon, Feb 19, 2018 at 2:38 PM, Gonz wrote: > Took some pics of a bicycle sculpture installation while I was walking >

Buildings behind make it more identifiable as a bicycle sculpture but I think the sky behind make a more interesting abstract. -p On 2/19/2018 1:38 PM, Gonz wrote: Took some pics of a bicycle sculpture installation while I was walking around recently. I wanted to get some pics of this
