A steady, cold spring rain did not deter some 200 people from attending this morning’s official opening of Chinese artist Ai Weiwei’s Circle of Animals/Zodiac Heads outdoor installation in New York City.
The unveling of Ai Weiwei's Circle of Animals/Zodiac Heads outdoor sculpture at Central Park's Grand Army Plaza in NYC was postponed, due to a change in Mayor Bloomberg's schedule following the death of Osama bin Laden.
Melissa Chiu, Director of the Asia Society Museum in New York, talks to the KCRW's "To The Point" program about artist and activist Ai Weiwei, who is being held by Chinese authorities on charges of "economic crimes."
