Our headquarters and our hearts are always in San Francisco. This week, we showcase three exhibitions opening and closing in the Bay Area to lure you to our favorite place in the country.
On Friday, July 16, Ecocity Dreamin': The Illustrations of Richard Register closes at SPUR, the San Francisco Planning and Urban Research Association's gallery. The show features the work of Ecocity Builders founder Richard Register and his illustrations from the past 30 years, which depict solutions for land use, transportation, architecture, and the environment.
On Saturday, July 17, New Topographics: Photographs of a Man-Altered Landscape opens at the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art. The exhibit is a restaging of the original New Topographics show first on display in 1975, which was a departure from traditional ways of depicting landscapes a la Ansel Adams and a foray into showcasing built objects as part of nature, albeit man-altered. The exhibit features nearly 150 photos from all ten of the photographers with works displayed in the original exhibit. Click back here to dwell.com later this week to see a sneak-peak slideshow of the exhibition.
