this three-part show focuses on a romantic connection to california, its land and bohemian culture, as well as a particular group of artists who, through their love of the area and social practice, comprise a unique moment in local art.

PASSAGER by Terri Loewenthal

this image was commissioned by SFMOMA to document the first of david wilson's 2012 SECA project arrivals, a series of six self-guided journeys to outdoor sites throughout san francisco.

the 16-foot drawing nestled in the presidio depicts frog woman rock, the spectacle that marks the beginning of the end of the journey to our handmade house.

here it is in the film flesh.

 

and here are a few favorite vignettes of the opening ceremony that took place on september 14, 2013 (plenty more here).
