Last weekend, on 9th of October, Barry Mcgee revealed his latest project that was realized in conjunction with a nonprofit public art organization Sites Unseen and Ratio 3 gallery. The infamous SF-based artist turned the local Moscone Center Garage in downtown San Francisco’s Yerba Buena neighborhood into his permanent art installation.
The makeover is the 1st of the many similar actions planned by the Sites Unseen as a part of their efforts to “create public art that celebrates San Francisco and responds both to the specific conditions of the sites as well as artistic and cultural values that engage local, national, and international communities.” And working with an icon of SF art scene was definitely the right way to start things off. The install consist of large geo panels and patterns scattered around the building’s facade, along with smaller handpainted characters and details hiding on random corners, edges and walls.
