New Yerba Buena Lawn Art

in Culture

THE LAWN ART PROJECT Sponsored by non-profit Yerba Buena Gardens Conservatory and the Yerba Buena Community Benefit District, The Lawn Art Project is currently displayed on the sprawling lawns of the Yerba Buena Gardens which acts as the canvas for this stunning work. This freshly innovative installation entitled “infinite center, infinite suns” by artist Tosha Stimage (featured above), is not made to last as the array of avant-garde designs will slowly fade; a result of the sun’s rays. In late September, the Project kicked off with multi-disciplinary artist Tosha Stimage’s “infinite center, infinite suns”.

The installation is a colorfully striking display of colorful spheres and rays made with grass-safe paint. Inspired by social distance guidelines, visitors are invited to sit inside each sphere and viscerally experience the art. Multi-disciplinary artist Tosha Stimage uses a variety of mediums to examine and reflect on the limitations of language, and her work focuses on disrupting the idea of isolated meaning.

Next up is artist, designer and architect June Grant, 2020 CultureBank West Oakland Artist Cohort. Grant is the Design Principal at blink!LAB architecture that focuses on spatial transformation through design, urban advocacy and technology exploration. Grant’s design will be on display starting Friday, November 13, 2020. These first two installations are curated by Yerba Buena Center for the Arts (YBCA) with a grant by the Yerba Buena Community Benefit District. Come interact with the art and breathe fresh life and fresh air in a socially distanced way! Be within the art as the art is within you. And while this art may fade, the impression it leaves will not.
