Ai Weiwei planning art exhibition on Alcatraz
SAN FRANCISCO (KGO) -- A celebrated Chinese artist and political dissident is planning a major art exhibition on Alcatraz.
Ai Wewei is currently working with the National Park Service and other local agencies to get approval for the project. If it's approved, the show could open sometime in Fall 2014.
So far, there's very little information about what exactly the artist is planning to show at the former prison.
The artist himself was jailed by Chinese authorities in 2011. He's made several art pieces about his time in prison.
