New sculptures could light up Hayes Valley park

Two new sculptures could light up Patricia’s Green beginning next month as part of a series of rotating art exhibits to grace the small but lively park in Hayes Valley.

The San Francisco Recreation and Parks Commission is expected to review a proposal Thursday that would move the metal sculptures one step closure to installation at Hayes Street and Octavia Boulevard.

The sculptures, by a Bay-Area based duo called HYBYCOZO, are geometrical “with unique laser cut patterned panels and LED lights that can change colors,” according to the proposal. The artists behind the works are Yelena Filipchuk and Serge Beaulieu.

One of the sculptures weighs 1,000 pounds while the other clocks in at 700 pounds. They would light up the park for one year starting Nov. 8.

An approval at Rec and Park later this week would move the proposal to the Arts Commission for final approval Nov. 7.
