A new outdoor sculpture exhibition was on display that week. I had time to snap photos because I got to Civic Center early. The sculptures were amazing!
I learned that the exhibition is composed of 19 animal sculptures by artist Hung Yi.
After getting off the Civic Center BART station, I was walking on Larkin St. to get to my Jury Duty venue when I saw the displays. The first set of sculptures I saw were called the Animal Circus.
Most, if not all, of the sculptures are made of baked enamel on steel plate, granite of different sizes. I find the designs elegant and at the same time refreshing. Looking at the sculptures made me happy and upbeat considering I was going to a Jury Duty. The design is a mix of modern bold colors and Asian tranditional arts. If you look closely, there is also humor in the design.
Here one of the designs upclose.
Here's a virtual tour of the exhibit.

It was organized and privately funded by InSian Gallery and the Swinging Skirt Golf Foundation. It was coordinated by the Office of the Mayor, the San Francisco Arts Commission and the Recreation and Park Department.
The exhibit was on display between April 17, 2015 through May 7, 2015.
