I was in San Francisco over the Thanksgiving break and was delighted to come across eight giant Mark di Suvero sculptures displayed in Crissy Field.
The collection spans five decades of work by di Suvero, and the pieces are colossal. The location perfectly complements the sculptures, with the backdrop of the San Francisco Bay and the Golden Gate Bridge, as the exhibition is a collaboration between the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, Golden Gate National Parks Conservancy, and di Suvero himself.
The space that is Crissy Field, a former grass airstrip, appropriately displays the sculptures in the most fantastic way, as they require such a large, open setting. I would recommend that anyone living in or visiting San Francisco make a trip to see the exhibition before it closes in May 2014.
