Sculptures by Vito Acconci seen at San Francisco International Airport, San Francisco - Two Wings for Wall and Person

Two Wings for Wall and Person

Two Wings for Wall and Person is a twelve-panel etching created by Vito Acconci. This beautiful piece adorns a white wall at the Terminal 3 of San Francisco International Airport. Acconci’s work is often characterized by a direct involvement of the viewer as an element in the artwork. In this etching, rather than just looking at the wings, the artist suggests that the viewer has a place within the wings; lean back against the wall and see if you can fly!
