|Museum Courtyard - San Francisco 2014|
[A] commission by Andy Goldsworthy takes its inspiration from the unique character of
California’s tectonic topography. Goldsworthy has created a continuous crack running north from the edge of the Music Concourse roadway in front of the museum, up the main walkway, into the exterior courtyard, and to the main entrance door. Along its path, this crack bisects -- and cleaves in two -- large rough-hewn stone slabs that serve as seating for museum visitors.
