In the plaza area of UCSFs Mission Bay campus, people frequently look up in awe at the Richard Serra sculpture called Ballast. Around the world, Serras sculptures are rightfully lauded for their expanse and vision, but as Serra told Charlie Rose this year, Ive been drawing all my life ... But the larger public and I even think probably the larger art public - doesnt know the history of my drawing. Now they will. For the first time, Serras drawings have been collected in one public exhibition - not just the wall drawings but also his notebooks, which the 71-year-old Serra has been loath to part with. Richard Serra Drawing: A Retrospective arrives in San Francisco from New Yorks Metropolitan Museum of Art. More than 50 works, from book-sized to behemoth, are on display in this revealing look at a shadow side of Serra's career.
