A Good Enough Reason to Go All the Way out to the Presidio!

Hey, remember the Presidio? It’s that hard-to-get-to green place between here and the Golden Gate Bridge. Well, they’re having art out there now, and this was originally the last week to get to it!

Sponsored by the For-Site Foundation, Presidio Habitats showcases works designed to help out the animals living in the national park: a pyramid for a fox, a hummingbird feeder, a house for a bat, a house for a bee. Of course, with our luck, the owl teepee was inhabited by some weed-smokin’ hippie before any owls could set up house in there, but it’s a nice idea, and they’re tearing down everything that’s left… eventually. It’s extended to summer of this year, but no exact dates are given, so my advice is to get there sooner rather than later.

Visitors get free maps from an Exhibition Pavilion designed by Ogrydziak/Prillinger Architects across from the Log Cabin. Then they guide themselves on walking tours amongst the exhibitions.

Sarah M. Smart - Red-Light Special

Sarah M. Smart was summoned into being on a distant ice cream planet
through an unholy union of Two-Buck Chuck and unicorns. They sent her to Indianapolis and then the University of Missouri's School of Journalism
to spread peace and big hair. Perpetually in mourning for the comma, she
has worked for a variety of print media, including Indianapolis
Monthly
, Global Journalist, and Vox. Since moving
to San Francisco for the booming dumpster-diving scene, she has been an
online operative for such fine folks as Horoscope.com , Neo-Factory, and
Academy of Art University. After a day of cat-feeding, hat-making,
dog-walking, vegan baking, and daydreaming about marrying rich, all she
wants is a margarita as big as her face.
