Coming and going the new Bay Bridge is a stunning achievement- not only in the sweep of its sleek skyway and the luminous vertical lines of suspension but also in the feeling of grandeur and openness it brings to the experience of making the crossing.
On Friday evening with artists Amanda Hughen and Jennifer Starkweather we will celebrate the opening of the Bay Bridge and this feat of engineering with a reception for Valediction.
In Valediction, Hughen/Starkweather create collaborative artworks that explore the layers, complexities, and patterns that comprise a specific place using both current and historic information, photographs, maps, and data to research a location. The resulting artworks map unique forms and patterns derived from built systems and natural movements of a place.
September 6 – October 19, 2013
Opening reception: Friday, September 6, 6-8 PM
