        How To Look at Public Art | KQED Art School

        Have you ever wondered about the public art you see around town? Do you know how to find the meaning of outdoor sculptures and paintings? Join a six-year-old host on a journey to discover monumental public artworks throughout San Francisco.

        Public art is all around us, but sometimes we don't even notice it! Get some insight about the famed Bow and Arrow by the bay by artists Claes Oldenburg and Coosje Van Bruggen, and Ruth Asawa's bay-framing fountain sculpture across the street. Then grab your hiking boots and head for the woods to see Andy Goldsworthy's all-natural installations in The Presidio. Learn how to read these public artworks and many more.

        Do you have a favorite public artwork in your town? Snap a photo and share it with us on Twitter @KQEDArtSchool.
