The YBCBD is a proud fiscal sponsor for Sites Unseen who are pleased to announce the unveiling of Love Over Rules, New York-based artist Hank Willis Thomas’ first permanent public artwork in the United States. The large-scale animated text-based neon artwork is Sites Unseen’s third public art project and will be installed on the exterior wall of a private building above Annie Street, an alley close to the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art in the downtown Yerba Buena neighborhood. On Thursday, November 9, the artwork will be illuminated for the first time following a public artist talk at the California Historical Society. Thomas, who graduated from the California College of the Arts’ MFA program in 2004, has deep ties to the city and local culture.
