IPTC INFO
CaptionThe 16th Avenue Tiled Steps Project Moraga Street between 15th and 16th Aves. San Francisco CA USA Sponsored by The San Francisco Parks Trust --- --- --- This project was inspired by the decorated steps that lead up a long hill to the neighborhood of Santa Teresa in Rio de Janeiro Brazil. Project organizer Jessie Audette right lived in Rio for 5 years and enjoyed walking up the Santa Teresa steps with her husband. --- --- --- Artists Aileen Barr and Colette Crutcher below created the mosaic design a colorful flowing sea-to-sky theme with fish near the foot of the steps and birds leaves and stars near the top. The mosaic consists of 163 separate mosaic panels one for each step riser. Community members were able to participate directly in creating the panels via a series of workshops that the artists held during summer 2004. _____________________________ The Tiled Steps By zoxcleb GPS This photo was taken on May 21 2011 in Golden Gate Heights San Francisco CA US using a Canon EOS Digital Rebel XSi. http://www.flickr.com/photos/zoxcleb/5744947605/ License Some rights reserved
