Rock Art at the De Young Museum

We must have walked by these stone sculpture/seats in the entrance to the De Young museum a hundred times without even noticing the floor cracks slicing thru them all. Boy- did I feel stupid, just goes to show you’ve got to slow down and smell the roses. These sculptures are done by Andrew Goldsworthy and make sure you take them in next time you visit. They are such a subtle and fun way to connect art with environmental design, the cracks go thru the floor tiles and up and down the stone slabs, connecting to each other perfectly.
