Today's the last day to catch Ai Weiwei's @Large exhibit on Alcatraz. In case you missed it, here's a few shots from our visit earlier this week.
As you enter the New Industries Building, you're faced with a tremendous, colorful dragon. The dragon is a symbol of power and freedom, and incorporated in the body of the dragon are panels with quotes from political prisoners.
In the next room, political prisoners are depicted in portraits done in Legos.
In the main prison, one block of cells was equipped with audio. Each cell had a different experience — readings, music — that you immersed yourself in as you entered the cell.
I hadn't been to Alcatraz in well over 20 years, and this was only my second visit. Living here, it's easy to relegate it to the list of things that tourists do, but it's worth a visit now and then.
