Public Art

After the farmer's market last Saturday and before a looksee at the preview for Bonhams and Butterfields SOMA auction, we stopped by the dump for the Open Studio show for this quarter's artists in residence.

On our way in from where we'd parked the car, we found this public art outside the SF Recycling and Disposal office.

The art was interesting. Unusual. The artists have three month gigs and it must be something, those first few days or weeks, trying to decide what to do, what to salvage, what to use. The possibilities are endless and yet, you wouldn't want to do something that someone else has already done.

Out in the open area courtyard outside the gallery area, I found this.

Found art.
