Public Arts

There's this SF Arts Commission who makes sure that there is publick art out in SF. One of tha aspects ah like tha most is tha Arts of Market Street Program which put art on tha kiosks generally used fer advertising throughout tha very long, busy, and central Market St in 'Frisco (which no one actually calls 'frisco). It's a great example of how art ken be made publically available, n ah sure appreciate havin somethang worthwhile ta look at instead of anutha advertisement as ah walk in downtown.

Apparently, tha series ah really enjoyed recently is ovah, but ahve seen some of tha postahs still up. It's tha Wish You Were Here! Postcards from our Awesome Future installment. Apparently some artists talked to Bay Area rchitects, urban planners and transportation engineers and asked them "What would you do if you didn't have to worry about budgets, bureaucracy, politics or physics?" Then they created 6 silly posters elaborating on these ideas.

My favorite is tha Z-Line, which is a zipwire from San Francisco to Oakland - here's a bettah photo. These posters will supposedly be on sale at some point in time, so ahm gawna try n stay vigilant n aware so ah ken grab one.

On a down-note, how tha hell dae ah nawt have anyone in tha area who wants to see tha "Zombie Strippers" premiere tonight n attend a Q&A w. tha writer/director? Ah just can't justify gaein intae SF ta see a movie by myself....
