Thanks to KRON4 for letting us know about an amazingly beautiful art installation just opened in the middle of nature, in a park in Tiburon with a peak-a-boo view of the top of the Golden Gate Bridge and of Downtown San Francisco.

The Tiburon Heritage & Arts Commission announced the unveiling of their newest piece of public art – Collaborative Nature by Thomas Jackson. Jackson’s work centered on our relationship with the environment – and the forces of nature, time, and change. The installation opened on May 20th at the South of the Knoll Park and is planned to be on display in the park for all to enjoy (but not touch) until July 9, 2023

According to the artist the biggest threats to the delicate art piece are pretty obvious “The two greatest threats it faces are high winds and small children, who, bless their little hearts, seem inexorably drawn to it.”

The art piece is made up of colorful lightweight fabric attached the ground by nearly 800 poles and took about a week to set up. The art piece is centered on our relationship with the environment – and the forces of nature, time, and change. Jackson’s work is the first public work of art envisioned in a series of temporary public art exhibitions celebrating Tiburon’s cultural potential.
