THE DREAMER



While in Golden Gate Park (San Francisco) yesterday we discovered this huge sculpture. When my husband stood next to it he came up to the eyebrows. He is 6 feet tall, so I would imagine this purple head is almost 12 feet tall and at least that in width.
"The Dreamer" is by Pepe Ozan and built in collaboration with Elonifer Skyhawk.
It is a temporary exhibition that will run through November of 2007.
For more information about "The Dreamer" and the Foundation's efforts to bring interactive artwork to public spaces, visit their website www.BLACKROCKART.org

Hello Sue and the Dreamer!
I would like to see an environment, where this sculpture is located.
Your dream is quite near now - living in a new house.
Very nice weekend to you and your family!

interesting with the semi mask :) looks like Zsolt will like it...he's quite a collector of mask. How big is the scale of this entire exhibition?

He's probably purple because he can't breathe with his nose underground!!

Temporary exhibit? They'll need a crane to remove it! Thanks for sharing. Your photos are always very enjoyable.

Cool statue, and funny comments! :)

JAM said...

Looks kinda wierd, but I guess it would liven up a walk in the park to see things like this from time to time.

Definitely would wake up my mind; make me more aware of what's around me.

Oh, what a wonderful shade of purple coming up out of the vibrant green grass. I love public art and it is great to just stumble across it, isn't it?
