Art About Town: San Francisco... Stop And Enjoy The Fillmore

"Relish, Too" By J. Seward Johnson
Fillmore District, San Francisco California. July 10th, 2013

"It is good to love many things, for therein lies the true strength, and whosoever loves much performs much and can accomplish much, and what is done in love is done well."

~Vincent van Gogh

Stop And Enjoy The Fillmore (Part One)

It's time to move on from the worries of the world methinks. It's time for some new public art, and I found a fantastic new public art walk in San Francisco that can't help but brighten one's day! It consists of 12 different life sized sculptures depicting different human moments. Each is incredibly lifelike and touch the soul in a different way. Some poignant, some humorous, some bring about feelings of warmth and love. I didn't photograph all the sculptures this week, I want to return to the Fillmore throughout the summer to complete the set. There are times when I just need a break from the heavy news and frustrating moments of life, and nothing makes me feel better than to spend time getting lost in art. Especially public art! Not only do you get the feelings each sculpture evokes, but you get the exercise, the awesome weather, and you get to explore the neighborhoods you maybe haven't visited before! That's what I love about public art in San Francisco, all the extra experiences that go along with it!

I am really excited to see, and photograph more of the sculptures! It's simply the best way to spend a mid summer day! I highly reccommend it!
