the upper crust
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.
