  • "Spineway," by French-born artist Marc Fornes

With 22 colors and nearly 1,000 pieces held together by 20,000 rivets, "Spineway" at Woodlawn Lake Park joins San Antonio's robust displays of public art.

The large-scale outdoor sculpture was unveiled and dedicated earlier this week.



French-born, New York-based artist Marc Fornes created "Spineway," his first outdoor public art installation in the United States. The illuminated sculpture is 20 feet tall and roughly 70 feet wide.

“Marc Fornes is a dynamic and well-respected artist known throughout the world, and we are honored that San Antonio is the home of Marc’s first outdoor public art installation in the country,” Felix N. Padrón, director of the City’s Department for Culture & Creative Development, said in a press release. “His sculpture adds a new dynamic to Woodlawn Lake Park, while integrating the surroundings and maintaining the character of the park.”
