San Francisco’s Museum of Modern Art is hosting a free family event today, 10:00 a.m. – to 3:00 p.m. at Crissy Field. No doubt you have noticed the enormous painted steel sculptures that landed on the field in May. All created by artist Mark DiSuvero. We rarely get a chance to see so many of his works displayed in a setting that gives them the space and breadth they deserve to be fully appreciated. A first for San Francisco.
Today’s event, “Brave the Elements: Where Line, Shape and Color Meet Earth, Wind and Sky” is a day of poetry, music and art making. It will give you and your children a chance to get up close (and personal) with each of the constructions. My favorite is ‘Old Buddy (for Rosko)’ named in tribute to his dog. And those of us who have known the love of a dog will recognize the playfulness of his stance as he leans forward in anticipation. Do you see it? I took this picture a few months ago so ignore the fog. Don’t worry. It is a beautiful, clear autumn day in SF.
See you there!
