May 16, 2010

'Patience' by Jensen Architects

There are miles of nature to explore right here in our own backyard at The Presidio .

And today, Sunday 5/16/2010, is the Opening Day for the Presidio Habitats Exhibition – a site-based art exhibition celebrating the wild Presidio.

More from the Presidio Trust site:

It began with an invitation to an international group of artists, architects, and designers to submit a proposal for a temporary habitat sculpture serving a Presidio “animal client.”

From 25 submissions, eleven were selected to be created in the landscape. The projects—diverse in their approach, material, and purpose—are featured along trails, paths, and roadways around the Presidio’s Fort Scott District. An accompanying audio narrative, accessible by cell phone, an indoor Exhibition Pavilion, and an array of events invite the community to engage with the art and the park. Plan for return visits to watch the transformation of Habitat art through the seasons…

Presidio Habitats can be experienced through chance discovery, a self-guided tour, a visit to the Exhibition Pavilion, or via activities introducing visitors to the Presidio’s natural world [...]

Get on out and explore Art in the Presidio. There’s so much to see and learn. The Opening Day celebration will be at Noon to 4pm today and the Exhibit runs for one year til 5/15/2011.
