A Day to Explore

To cap off the time I spent in the headlands drawing the ocean and cliffs of rodeo cove, I made a map for sharing. I walked the paths of the cove with a giant piece of paper, folding it over and over and drawing as I made my way across the hills. This drawing surveying charting experience was redrawn and designed into the map which you see above. It's been printed as an 11x17 piece of parchment, and it has an intended use...

On sunday May 10th, mothers day, from noon to sundown, you can use this map to explore rodeo cove and discover a sprinkling of sparkling installations and performances and offerings by the likes of hannah barr-dichiara, drew bennet, canyon cinema, coconut, andrew connors, chris duncan, zach huston, inca ore, ruth kneass, amy mosley, kelly nicholson, meara o'reilly (avocet), maggie otero, pale hoarse, jesse schlesinger, stephen somple, lydia west, and more to come.

If you would like a copy of the map, we're trying to collect $5 to cover some costs. Here's a paypal button, or you can send an email inquiry to ribbonspublications[at]gmail[dot]com...a map will appear at your door.

juan's put a call to bike gang...any takers?

you could bring your bikes on the bus and bike from the presidio, or just bike from embarcadero...and then take the ferry back. sounds pretty dreamy to me.

dave, you sound pretty dreamy to me. I believe that I will be biking both ways. And I would be delighted to be part of a bike gang.

'Cept we live in the east bay! We were thinking of taking the trannybus to the first ferry (10.40) from pier 41, but would rather hitch a ride on the benson bus if that were happ'ning...

ribbons said...

there's no plans for a benson bus tour...when I talked with him about this briefly a month or so ago, he said he'd be out of town trying to repair the bus.

so, I think it's all up to everyone.
