Manifest Destiny!: Reception for the artists
Location: 447 Bush Street @ Grant (Hotel des Arts)
Jenny Chapman and Mark Reigelman’s Manifest Destiny! is a temporary rustic cabin occupying one of the last remaining unclaimed spaces of downtown San Francisco — above and between other properties. Using a 19th-century architectural style and vintage building materials, the structure is both homage to the romantic spirit of the Western Myth and a commentary on the arrogance of Westward expansion. The installation will remain in place and be slowly transformed by the elements through October 2012.
On Saturday, February 18, Southern Exposure toasts the launch of the first commission of the Graue Award with a reception in the artists' honor at the Hotel des Arts at 447 Bush Street, from 4 – 6 pm. Please join us in celebration of the artists and supporters of Manifest Destiny!.
A public walking tour of the area, led by local artists and other experts, is planned for July 2012.
