"What would make today a good day for you?" That is the question curious visitors to this fancy gold shipping container, now at Proxy in Hayes Valley, are asking complete strangers from around the world in a groundbreaking public art project.
Take a load off, and have a SEAT overlooking the bay at Fort Mason. Local artist and landscape designer extaordinaire Topher Delaney and Kika Probst, both of Seam Studio, have curated the next generation of public art at Fort Mason Center, accessible to everyone, gratis (weather permitting, unless you like the idea of sitting on a soggy bench in the rain).
Too short on cash to check out expensive museum exhibits at the de Young or SFMOMA? Get your art fix, gratis, by heading over to Civic Center Plaza. The SF Arts Commission just announced the extension of the public art project by acclaimed environmental artist Patrick Dougherty. Comprised of 4,500 pounds of freshly cut willow saplings from The Willow Farm in Pescadero (some more than 50 years old) interwoven into the treetops of the sycamore trees in Joseph L. Alioto Performing Arts Piazza of Civic Center Plaza, The Upper Crust is the artist’s first project in San Francisco.
