The Eye: Three Models for 580 California

Today’s artwork chosen by Kalman Muller

AGE: 32

OCCUPATION: Film production

NEIGHBORHOOD: Castro

THE PIECE OF ARTWORK I LOVE: Three Models for 580 California (aka “The Corporate Goddesses”) by Muriel Castanis (1985)

WHY DID YOU CHOOSE THIS PIECE? The three 12-foot, white sculptures on each side of the building seem hidden but watch over their surroundings.

WHAT STANDS OUT MOST TO YOU ABOUT IT? They do not have faces or hands and yet they seem to have control over their surroundings, as they stand imposing and mysterious. The Bank of America building is behind them.
