When’s the last time you paid a visit to San Francisco’s amazing Fort Mason Center? The popular art center hosts numerous exhibitions and displays throughout the year, and there are some special ones going on now that won’t be around much longer. Be sure to check these out:
Fort Mason entrance & Pier 2, through January 30
Artist Lawrence Weiner’s OUT OF SIGHT is a free outdoor exhibition where visitors can interact with a whimsical interactive hopscotch ground mural. It features colorful, graphic phrases in English, Spanish, and Mandarin Chinese, which viewers can hop between in a game-like format. Also on display at the Exploratorium (through Jan 30) and McEvoy Foundation for the arts (through Jan 22).
Buildings B & C, through January 30
Artist Thitiwat Phromratanapongse’s beautiful hand-painted murals are on display between Buildings B and C for just a bit longer! You can see them daily between 6am and 10pm in an immersive corridor gallery for free. The colorful, dynamic designs are an homage to Thai temple walls, showcasing gentle wave-like forms of birds, plants, and spiritual beings.
Gallery Wendi Norris at Pier 2, through January 30
Artists Ambreen Butt, Chitra Ganesh, and Eva Schlegel present diverse works that consider the concept of Fate through sculpture, video, portraiture, and more. You can see the exhibition for free daily from 12pm-6pm, with screenings of Ganesh’s videos at 1pm and 5pm.
