DESCRIPTION

A Group Exhibition celebrating the 75th Anniversary  of the Golden Gate Bridge

To celebrate the 75th Anniversary of the Golden Gate Bridge, the Rena Bransten Gallery will present an exhibition titled The Bridge, which will include art works in all media created especially for this occasion.  Taking “the bridge” as a theme, gallery artists John Bankston, Don Ed Hardy, Hung Liu, Sam Perry, Tracey Snelling, Tara Tucker, and Marci Washington, joined by Chris Thorson, artists from Creative Growth and the San Francisco Arts Education Project, produced special works that span the creative divide, plumb the depths of their visual imaginations, and describe points of view that extend across a wide spectrum of artistic visions and applications.  Bridges have inspired, challenged, and invited metaphor among artists, photographers, writers, poets, architects and engineers throughout history – but surely the most beautiful, romantic, and evocative of all the famous spans is the Golden Gate.
