Despite the arrival of what I call "The Mini-Winter", where the foggy skies take up "permanent residence" 24/7 from May to August, it was a lovely weekend. First, the wonderful Enid (courtesy of Pam of Yorobobo) arrived, She was made welcome by some of my "Froggy Friends". I ♥ Enid! Thank you Pam!
I volunteered at the de Young too - and was delighted to find a temporary exhibit entitled "Young at Art" which displayed art (in all mediums) from San Francisco Public School children. The finalists will have their work displayed in Washington DC. Their ages varied from 5 - 18. I was astounded at all of the wonderful creativity. It gives hope for the future of Art...and of Artists.
These ceramic "Froggies" were created by 6 year olds. I wanted to capture them all in one shot...but probably should have come in closer so you could see the marvelous detail!
This wonderful painting, a finalist, who will be exhibiting in Washington DC soon is 16 years old. (The photo is hanging on a wall - I had no option but to shoot directly upwards.)
Last, I adore this SF mural - a group project by 5 year olds....they really captured the San Francisco Skyline with a real sense of style and flair!
Outside the de Young, the "Only in San Francisco" "Bay to Breakers" Race was run yesterday. Many actually 'ran' the race, many more 'walked', skipped and drunkenly 'staggered' through.
We had to turn away a few would-be intoxicted "Patrons" who wanted in to the Museum, wearing ONLY a set of Viking Horns. NOT a pretty sight....and no, I didn't photograph them.
Bravi to all the young artists featured above! Isn't it heartwarming to see their work?
