A First Look at SFMOMA’s Offsite ProgrammingAuthor:Lindsey Shook
Crissy Field (May 2013–May 2014)
SFMOMA has teamed up with the National Park Service and the Golden Gate Parks Conservancy for a yearlong waterfront display near the Golden Gate Bridge. Curated by SFMOMA director (and one of this year’s Hot 30s > refer back to 7×7’s October issue) Neal Benezra, the exhibition at Crissy Field is comprised of eight large-scale, steel sculptures by artist Mark di Suvero, who emigrated from Shanghai to San Francisco when he was seven and was greatly inspired by his passage under the GG Bridge (which opened a few years before his arrival). The outdoor exhibit (including a recent sculpture that’s never been on view to the public before) is the largest display of the sculptor’s work ever shown on the West Coast, and, wait for it … it’s free.
