Mark di Suvero at Crissy Field ~ San Francisco, through May 26, 2014
Wonder as you wander under eight towering steel sculptures by artist Mark di Suvero at Crissy Field. Set against the backdrop of the Golden Gate Bridge, with plenty of space to run and play, the sculptures swerve, soar, and move with the breeze, creating dynamic lines that frame and reframe the surrounding landscape in surprising new ways. This free yearlong exhibition is presented by SFMOMA in partnership with the National Park Service and Golden Gate National Parks Conservancy.
