NEWSLETTER May 22
May has brought out all kinds of great visual art. From ArtPadSF to SFAI’s MFA Exhibition and artMRKT, the cultural feasting was almost too much to handle! But, luckily, we always have more energy for art. If you do too, here’s a bit of public art news and events.
It’s alive: If you’ve passed Civic Center Plaza in the past week, you’ve probably noticed a strange sight. No, your eyes aren’t deceiving you - that really is a 24-foot breathing flower. The installation by Korean artist Choi Jeong Hwa will be around until mid-September. Check out images here.
Giant art park: As of May 22, the Mark di Suvero exhibition at Crissy Field has opened to the public. A series of enormous steel structures in red and brown, the installation enlivens an already beautiful space by the Golden Gate Bridge (pictured above).

Tons of great art can be found in an amazing historic building at San Francisco Art Institute’s 2013 MFA exhibition, Currency, at The Old Mint though Sunday. Pictured sculpture by Hanna Kunysz. #sf #aphotoaday #publicart #mfa #sfai #currency #theoldmint #sfhistory (at The Old San Francisco Mint)
