Walking Along Fisherman’s Wharf

Published by Erica on

Souvenir shops abound along the street, showcasing magnets, hats, shirts, miniature trolley cars, key chains. Jewelery vendors and artists take up residence across the street (where there is a little more sidewalk room!), restaurants of all kinds announce their fresh sea fare, and the whole area abounds with a sense of tourism. Which is why you might not expect to walk along and see fine art in a gallery on the same strip. You can take the girl out of the conference, but you can’t take the humanities out of her! Shannon and I walked into at least two different art galleries and saw original works by Dali, Picasso, and Warhol. Like this one we both fell in love with.

Martha Graham- The Kick by Andy Warhol

We saw another piece that looked like a Degas, but it wasn’t. I was pretty excited about that, but really, just looking in there at the galleries was wonderful! I appreciated that they let us wander even though we were not paying customers. 

Hooray for art!
