Gifts from Artists

I was riding my bike down San Fernando Street last night and as I crossed the Guadelupe River I heard bird calls and looked up to see this intriguing sculpture installed across the entire span of the bridge.  There were miniature tents (which I've always loved) mounted on metal pipes.  The text that accompanied the sculpture seemed a little wordy and somewhat gratuitous.  The little tents and bird calls and other sounds really speak for themselves and for several minutes allowed me to marvel over the artists' ability to transform this space.
This is just one of several newly commissioned public art projects that can be experienced for FREE.  Go to 2010 01SJ Biennial for a complete list of the public art on display now.
