IPTC INFO
Caption"When will Kenneth Baker stop belaboring San Francisco's failure to embrace Richard Serra's 1994 California Palace of the Legion of Honor proposal? I doubt that Baker would have even bothered to review George Rickey's sculpture for the New Main Library "Sculpture for the Lazy " June 29 1997 if it hadn't provided him with yet another opportunity to lament "The One That Got Away." [["Sculpture for the Lazy" June 29 1997] --- --- --- ___ --- --- --- "I've been barbecued in San Francisco and I don't need to get fried anymore " Mr. Serra said in a telephone interview this week. The reason he gave for backing out of the job seems simple enough. The land is owned by the city and is therefore under the jurisdiction of the Parks and Recreation Department's gift policy which states: "Parks and Recreation reserves the right to re-site or remove a gift if it becomes a hazard or liability or if the approved terms of the acceptance are not fulfilled. The Commission working with the Arts Commission may consider the deaccessioning of works of art." http://www.nytimes.com/1994/07/15/arts/inside-art.html --- --- --- ___ --- --- --- "1999-05-02 04:00:00 PST SAN FRANCISCO -- The Board of Supervisors' vote not to fund Buster Simpson's proposed sculpture for the Embarcadero - popularly known as "The Foot" - sent a wave of adrenaline pulsing through the veins of much of the populace. " David Bonetti
HeadlineSince the Vaillancourt fountain at the foot of market the San Francisco public feeling about public sculpture in San Francisco has mainly been DISTRUST - a fire fed by art critics who dismiss public feeling as a criteria with the same standing as IGNORANCE
