SRQ DAILY SATURDAY PERSPECTIVES EDITION SATURDAY MAY 26, 2018

The Ringling Museum of Art is currently exhibiting twelve bronze sculptures named the Circle of Animals/Zodiac Heads by Chinese artist Ai Weiwei. The sculptures were inspired by the fountain-clock of Yuanming Yuan, an eighteenth-century fountain that featured animals of the Chinese zodiac. The sculptures have been on display across the globe since their official unveiling in 2011, making them one of the most viewed sculpture projects in the history of contemporary art. They will be on display through June 1. The Ringling grounds are free and open to the public.
