What’s Out There Weekend
On September 17th and 18th in San Francisco, The Cultural Landscape Foundation (TCLF) will host What’s Out There Weekend San Francisco, providing residents and visitors an opportunity to discover and explore twenty‐five free, publicly accessible sites in the Bay Area. The theme of the event is “Mostly Modern,” as most of the sites are Modernist. San Francisco and the Bay Area have the broadest and most diverse Modernist landscape legacy in the country—places people pass by on a daily basis, but do we know their background stories?
Expert guides will provide free tours of San Francisco parks, plazas, and gardens designed by some of America’s greatest landscape architects including Lawrence Halprin, Ted Osmundson, Robert Royston, and others. A companion What’s Out There Weekend San Francisco Web site features downloadable information about all the locations and a schedule of tours. The weekend is an extension of the What’s Out There database of America’s designed landscapes.
