San Francisco, CA 94129

San Francisco has a surprising amount of public art and sculpture. This nearly hundred-foot-tall art installation off of Arguello Blvd on Bay Area Ridge Trail in the Presidio was made from 38 large cypress trunks by British artist Andy Goldsworthy. He created the breathtaking sculpture as part of the Presidio’s reforestation effort in 2007 to evoke the layering of natural and human history in the Presidio’s forest.
