Off Shore: Finding City Waterways in Unexpected Places

Earlier this week we introduced you to the Southern Exposure summer series Off Shore, an exhibit where various artists would use San Francisco waterways and bays as an artistic medium. Now here's our next installment of this ongoing project:

Local artist Chris Sollars has been investigating the outdoors for years. In 1997 he started taking his work out of the studio and putting in into the streets in an effort to have art within a real space. He's worked in sculpture, performance, video, and, unexpectedly, water. He even says that he's swam across San Francisco, from the bay to the ocean, through a network of pools and fountains. Not entirely sure how that works, but intrigued? So was Southern Exposure, the gallery who invited Sollars to be a part of their summer series, Off Shore.
