mn_sanddrawing_ch_03.jpgA quickie from the SF Gate a few days ago, wish i could have been there to see it, poke at it, photograph it. Doesn’t it just scream touch me?

Artist Jim Denevan, right, rakes a textured design into the sand, above, at Ocean Beach just below the Cliff House in conjuction with an art project and exhibit at the Yerba Buena Center for the Arts. The Sunday afternoon project was made to vanish with the tide. Denevan, of Santa Cruz, has completed some 300 beach drawings between San Francisco and Santa Cruz. The group exhibition at Yerba Buena, called “Big Deal,” features large-scale sculptures and photos of other huge projects, and is meant to push viewers to see the relationships between themselves and the art object and surrounding space.
