DETROIT (AP) — A massive, fire-breathing dragon made of found objects made a quick visit to the Detroit Institute of Arts in a show of support for the museum.
The Detroit News reports (http://bit.ly/1g9JPW5 ) the mobile sculpture, which is 40 feet long and 20 feet high, was driven to the museum on Thursday night. It’s the creation of artist Ryan C. Doyle of Detroit and Hong Kong-based LED artist Teddy Lo.
Called “Gon KiRin,” the dragon was used to set ablaze a sign that read “#Save the Art.”
International auction house Christie’s has said it plans to appraise some pieces of the Detroit Institute of Arts collection over the coming weeks as the city tries to place a value on its assets following the largest municipal bankruptcy filing in U.S. history.
