Art Viewing Adventures: Public Art in Yerba Buena Gardens (Virtual)
August 8 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm
Rodney is joined by Anna Ewins to present a virtual version of the new walking tour they’re leading in Yerba Buena Gardens, which opened in 1993, adding valuable public space to a SOMA neighborhood that once had very little.
We’ll discuss artworks that evoke the memory of Martin Luther King and San Francisco’s maritime past. We’ll view a gathering space created by two Native American artists and see a beautifully restored relic that has moved and delighted generations of children. And we’ll encounter and share thoughts on a sculpture created by an artist who is also a successful composer of country music.
