Filled with things to keep even the most rambunctious happy, San Francisco Children's Art Center is a fun learning experience for kids. Rather than just letting them run loose, teachers guide children through the creative process in order to inspire personal expression and self-identity. Constructive and original workshops are available throughout the year offering such varied classes as Russian Theater Headpiece construction and Architectural Sculpture. This non-profit organization allows for a stimulating and progressive experience for your children that only this city can offer.
This statue of the diminutive, green Jedi master graces the entrance to the Lucasfilm offices in San Francisco's Presidio. Sitting atop a fountain, Yoda Statue was sculpted by artist and long-time Star Wars fan Lawrence Noble, who also created the Yoda statue on Lucas's Skywalker Ranch. Die-hard fans will definitely want to make the trip to this sci-fi shrine.
This piece of artwork in the Marina also plays music. The sea-powered organ is a set of pipes that run along the waterfront and extend into the waters of the bay. The organ was built by scientists from the San Francisco Exploratorium. Place your ear against one of the pipes and listen to the music created by the sound of the waves. It's a unique way to enjoy nature and this is, perhaps, one of the few places in the world that you can.
Spearheaded by Building REsources, the Reclaimed Room is an exhibition space with a difference. In keeping with Building REsources' dedication to the use of environmentally-conscious building materials, the art gallery showcases environmental media, arts and crafts, as well as educational projects and other programming. The Reclaimed Room is located just off the Islais Creek Channel, where few would expect to find art of any kind, bringing to life this oft neglected corner of the San Francisco Bay. For a preview of all that the gallery has to offer, visit the Reclaimed Room blog for photographs, videos and details regarding the fabulous artwork on display.
