The Vaillancourt Fountain
This piece of art is standing in Justin Herman Plazza, close to the Embarcadero center.
In short, this is rather puzzling!
You are supposed to climb on and through it and water is supposed to fall from inside...
However when I have seen it in january, it was closed and there was no falling water, that's probably why I was not that impressed...
The Franklin Bowles Galleries...
The Franklin Bowles Galleries (in between Ghiardelli Square and Fisherman's Wharf) - they were showing some Picaso's in the window as I walked by, but then I was extremely please to find out that they are one of Leroy Neiman's galleries.
The image you see here is his 'Portrait of the Lion'
Different people have...
Different people have different interests. If you like airplanes, there are 2 museums that are not too well advertised. The Hiller Aviation Museum is more well known having opened in the last few years. Located in San Carlos (in San Mateo county, south of San Francisco), they're specialty is helicopters. They have a website at http://www.hiller.org. The Pacific Coast Air Museum in Santa Rosa is north of San Francisco. They are not open every day. They have a somewhat rare N version of the F-16.
From the Mexican Museum at...
From the Mexican Museum at Fort Mason Center at Laguna and Marina Blvd. in San Francisco..this is a detail from the work 'Illegal Landscape' by artist Gronk, dated 1980-1986...Must be a very intriguing collection!
If Rodin moves you as he does me this is the place to go, a room to himself.
Good views of the Golden Gate Bridge from here too.
