Artists Write a Visual Love Letter to That Big Metal Workhorse: The Bay Bridge

Path (2011)

The Golden Gate Bridge might be the more iconic span, but there's a special place in our jaded hearts for its argent-hued counterpart to the east. That said, the Bay Bridge isn't widely considered a fount of artistic inspiration (although it does have an often-amusing Twitter account that we've written about.)

In “Approach, Transition, Touchdown: The Bay Bridge Project,” however, Amanda Hughen and Jennifer Starkweather turn their pens and pigments to San Francisco's less-celebrated platform. Timed to coincide with the 75th anniversary of the bridge's opening, “Approach, Transition, Touchdown” includes prints and drawings that represent the structure in imaginatively discursive ways. The exhibit's opening reception is Friday evening at Electric Works.
