Over the last month, a group of artists has been contemplating our waterways, both seen and unseen, for a group show titled “Off Shore.” Local artist Paul Cesewski presented an evening of floating kinetic sculptures, including an amphibious bicycle-powered Ferris wheel; performers from Esta Noche and the once-vivacious Lusty Lady held peepshows on open water; New York artist Marie Lorenz spent ten days in her homemade boat, gathering relics which are on display at Southern Exposure along with a growing collection of items from far flung places like Cape Verde, Venice, New Orleans, and Tuvalu, which are all in peril of vanishing as the climate changes. Today, Chris Sollars presents Yosemite Creek Walk, the last in his series of walks along San Francisco's buried streams. Starting at Yosemite Marsh, walkers will carry a block-long piece of rope to trace Yosemite Creek as it passes beneath the Bayview neighborhood toward the Yosemite Slough, where the Water Shed is moored. This beautiful floating raft is made of recycled materials and has served as artist headquarters throughout this exhibit. Walkers will be ferried over for food and drink.
