Sculptures in the City - Mark Di Suvero in Crissy Field

Mark Di Suvero - Dreamcatcher northwestviewEight compelling steel sculptures by artist Mark Di Suvero are currently on display in Crissy Field as part of an art exhibition by the SFMoMA.

The exhibition is outdoors and for free in Crissy Field. If you are in town, these sculptures will be on display until May 26, 2014.

Mijo and I originally planned visiting The Disney Family Museum in San Francisco's Presidio area. This area is also near Crissy Field so we decided to spend some time to see the sculptures by Mark Di Suvero which are currently on display there.

While I am no art expert, I love art and I see the beauty in every art. There is something therapeutic seeing them.

I usually don't carry my digital SLR but for this event I did bring my camera with my widest angle lens with the hope that it will give me more view. Plus I also want to capture the beauty of Crissy Field and the city. I had a challenge taking pictures of the sculpture because they don't have a front nor back. They are big but not massive.

Aside from being free of charge, another good thing about this exhibition is that it can be done as a mobile tour, by going to their mobile site 415-294-3609, or downloading their podcast

I don't have a favorite, but I have a couple that I was able to take more than two views. Let me take you on a virtual tour here. Enjoy!
