Art About Town... San Francisco

"Great art is as irrational as great music. It is mad with it's own loveliness."

-George Jean Nathan

It's it wonderful? It's called "The Dreamer" and it is by local artist Pepe Ozan. This sculpture was originally created for the 2005 Burning Man festival, the theme for the festival that year was "psyche." In keeping with the theme, the artist decided to create and interactive piece in order to experiment with the world of dreams. The half head sculpture, which seems to be coming out of the ground, can hold 40 - 50 people, and played dream inducing music as part of the exhibit at Burning Man. Isn't it fabulous? It will be on display in San Francisco's Golden Gate Park, on JFK drive, near the Rose Garden, now through November. I really enjoyed photographing it last Wednesday, so I know I will be going back to do more shots of it from different angles and with better light. :)
