Language of the Birds – A Must See Public Artwork in San Francisco!

Curbed.com recently published an article that highlights the public sculpture “Language Of The Birds” as one of the must see spots in San Francisco:

” Paying homage to the North Beach neighborhood’s ethnic and literary roots, this permanent sculpture is a small but meaningful (not to mention eye-catching) installation. A collection of books evoke a flock of birds at the northwest corner of Columbus Avenue and Broadway, suspended above a plaza embossed with words in English, Italian, and Chinese — the languages spoken by many of the area’s residents. The words themselves are a nod to various literary luminaries tied to North Beach, and the illuminations are offset by a solar power collaboration with City Lights, a bookstore known for its focus on progressive politics across the street. ”
