Description

With Mark di Suvero at Crissy Field, the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art starts off big with its plans to go beyond its walls during the museum’s expansion project. In partnership with the National Park Service and Golden Gate National Parks Conservancy, eight of di Suvero’s large-scale steel sculptures will be installed at Crissy Field. The museum’s director, Neal Benezra, curated the show, which surveys five decades of the 80-year-old artist’s work. The sculptures will be in view of the iconic Golden Gate Bridge, which has special meaning for the artist: He sailed under it when he emigrated to San Francisco from Shanghai in 1941 when he was 7 years old. The woman who picked the color of the bridge taught him to work wood when he was a teenager and you see in his work — dynamic sculptures spanning up to 50 feet high and 40 feet wide – how the color and scale of the bridge have inspired him. This show kicks off the museum’s off-site exhibits while its building closes for two and a half years during its expansion starting this June.
