Ai Weiwei brings Sunflowers to NYC

Chinese dissident artist Ai Weiwei was detained by government officials in Hong Kong for 81 days last spring, now he’s in New York with Sunflower Seeds. I had the pleasure of stumbling upon exhibit during it’s opening at the Mary Boone Gallery. Originally show at the Tate in London, this installation is made of over one million hand painted ceramic sunflower seeds and it’s stunning.
