Domestic Seating, the installation of nine bronze chairs at Church and Duboce, has been named one of the top new public art projects in the country.
The project was selected by Americans for the Arts, a nonprofit dedicated to advancing the arts and arts education. Each year, the group's Public Arts Network accepts hundreds of submissions, from which they select up to 50 projects "that represent the most compelling works from across the country."
Domestic Seating by artist Primitivo Suarez-Wolfe was one of four San Francisco works making this year's cut. The others included International Orange, an exhibit celebrating the Golden Gate Bridge, Troka Troka, in which an artist gave pickup trucks colorful makeovers, and Firefly, a wind powered installation on the side of the Public Utilities Commission building.
When we originally posted about Domestic Seating in December of 2012, commenters were decidedly mixed about the chairs. Now that we've all had six months to process these additions to the intersection, we're wondering if opinions have changed. Would this public art make your top 50 list? Or is it still too soon to say? Let us know what you think.
