Art in Nature: Presidio Habitats Extended!

Good news! The Presidio Habitats Exhibition has been extended through summer.
If you're in the Bay Area, or have planned a visit to San Francisco, you'll want to stop by The Presidio to take a self-guided tour or guided walk to explore the diverse approaches of these
temporary, outdoor site-based installations set amidst the Fort Scott area.

The Presidio is a beautiful landscape with a fascinating history. Amazing to think that for more than 200 years the land was a military site, encompassing Spanish, Mexican, and U.S. eras. Architecture buffs will appreciate the significance of the Presidio's buildings, now part of a wide-ranging preservation project.
And near the Presidio's Arguello Gate, you won't want to miss seeing

Regarding the special PRESIDIO HABITATS exhibition: Each work is about a 'habitat' meant to serve "an animal client," as the brochure explains.
Before walking the grounds to see the 11 installations, you'll want to begin at the Exhibition Pavilion where a larger group of submitted proposals are on view. For more information, visit:
The show is organized by the FOR-SITE FOUNDATION - web site:
