Submitted by the Event Organizer
On April 16, 2017, you are invited to join for an Easter-egg-hunt-style tour of approximately 50 sculptures interspersed throughout Golden Gate Park. Participants are encouraged to dress in their Sunday’s finest attire, but it’s not required.
In a safari-style (and self-dubbed “performedy”) excursion, the duo will lead audience members through historical sites and park landmarks from the infamous buffalo paddock to the Dutch windmill to the Golden Gate Polo Field, identifying scattered artworks along the way which guests are explicitly invited to add to, deface, or collect.
Will rain cancel? Check Facebook for updates.
Entitled “Finders Keepers,” the exhibition specifically engages Golden Gate Park as a recreational site with myriad, wide-ranging points of interest.

- 2 pm-4 pm: BBQ in Lindley Meadow (Join for hot dogs and La Croix. BBQ to be located at Polo field north bathroom)

Visitors are also welcome to join at any point during the tour, text: 213-361-8181.
For the inaugural iteration of R/SF en Plein Air, they are proud to feature a site-specific installation and performance by San Francisco-based mixed media artist Caitlin Petersen.
Refashioning the format of a scavenger hunt, the show’s promenade style viewing incorporates physical meandering, perhaps in line with a Situationist notion of psychogeography, to automatically engage participants with their environment and catalyze a reconsideration of the relationship therein.
As the eye becomes trained to seek the refuse-turned-art objects, Petersen sends each participant home with a reenergized perspective, and a new way of viewing the world.
