Launch of the Wrestler BookendsFriday, June 24, 6-9pm – The Wolfsonian-FIU, 1001 Washington Avenue, Miami Beach

The Wolfsonian–Florida International University invites you to celebrate the launch of its mighty Wrestler bookends, based on the much-loved 1929 aluminum Wrestler sculpture by Dudley Vaill Talcott. The bookends, created in collaboration with the national retailer Levenger, are for sale in the museum shop and on the www.levenger.com website beginning June 2. The launch of the bookends will be celebrated, with a reception on June 24 at The Wolfsonian’s Dynamo Museum Shop. The Wrestler bookends, based on the much-loved Wrestler statue standing sentinel in the museum’s lobby, with its impressive muscles and solid bulk, is fit for, well, just about anything, including the task of helping your books stand proudly on their shelves. The bookend retails for $99; purchase 2 or more for $88 apiece. A portion of the proceeds of all sales benefits The Wolfsonian. The Wrestler bookend is crafted with digital exactitude of tough polyresin with a finish echoing the iconic gleam of burnished aluminum.
