Exhibition

Mark di Suvero at Crissy Field

May 22, 2013 - May 26, 2014

Crissy Field

Presented by SFMOMA in partnership with the National Park Service and the Golden Gate National Parks Conservancy, eight monumentally scaled sculptures by Mark di Suvero rise at historic Crissy Field this May for a free yearlong exhibition. Set against the backdrop of the Golden Gate Bridge, a structure that has inspired the artist throughout his career, di Suvero’s dynamic steel sculptures frame and reframe the surrounding landscape in surprising new ways. The exhibition brings together works from across the country, dating from 1967 to 2012, celebrating five decades of work by the acclaimed artist.

Mark di Suvero at Crissy Field is presented by SFMOMA in partnership with the National Park Service and the Golden Gate National Parks Conservancy.

Presentation of this exhibition is made possible by extraordinary support from the Fisher family.

Premier support is provided by the Mimi and Peter Haas Fund and the Charles Schwab Corporation.
