Giant Bourgeois Spider Mounts San Francisco

In a fine addition to the ranks of public art used to terrify children, Louise Bourgeois' monumental “Crouching Spider” will be installed on the Embarcadero at noon Thursday (at Entry Plaza at Pier 14). We can only hope it makes its way over to Justin Herman Plaza and eats that monumental pile of crap left by the dog with the square intestines. Seriously, when is that piece of shit coming down?

The Details:

Installation Process:

Fabricated from bronze and stainless steel, the 2 1/2 ton sculpture measures approximately 10' high and 27' wide. The body of the spider will be suspended over the site, the eight legs inserted into the body, and lowered on to the pavement.
