Picture Box: The Temple at Patricia’s Green

The Temple at Patricia’s Green, celebrating 10 years of temporary art in Hayes Valley, was recently installed by local artist David Best. The 37-foot high and approximately 15-feet wide wooden sculpture is intended to be a place where people can interact with and write personal notes to their loved ones onto the piece. The San Francisco Arts Commission and Burning Man partnered to commission Best who has over the years displayed eight temples at the annual Burning Man festival. The temple is located at Patricia’s Green park on Octavia Street and is to remain for one year. (Special to S.F. Examiner/Natasha Dangond)
