The new sculpture on display is part of Newport Beach's "Sculpture in the Civic Center Park Exhibition" showcases the use of powder coating.

 

"La Cage aux Folles" is by Warren Techentin, an architect who "took inspiration from cages, follies and the nomadic Mongolian yurt to create his adventurous and interactive 'La Cage aux Folles,'" said a news release from Newport Beach city officials.

 

Shaped like a giant birdcage, it is located on the grounds of Materials & Applications, an independent, progressive design studio off Silver Lake Boulevard.

 

The artworks join the 10 current works that have been on display for the past year as part of the city’s Civic Center Park Sculpture Exhibition. The original 10 works will be rotated out next summer and replaced with a new set; the newly installed artwork will be rotated out in 2017.
