de Young Museum
Top left is the de Young Museum, rising above the vegetation and two views from the tower with the ever-present fog in the background. Middle row left is a composite-image work by Elliot Anderson, centre is a Toots Zynsky work of fused and thermoformed glass threads, and right is a painting by Richard Mayhew. The bottom row are all details of works: left, an installation of hand-blown silvered glass sculptures by Josiah McElheny, centre foreground is a David Nash totemic work and behind it is an installation by Cornelia Parker using charred remains of an African American Church in Alabama that was destroyed by arsonists, and bottom right is a cathedral by Al Farrow created from guns and ammunition - commenting on the historical connection between religious intolerance and warfare.
