Art on the EmbarcaderoDive head first into the San Francisco art scene with a trip to The Embarcadero, a vibrant neighborhood with an artistic edge. Perfectly situated on the beautiful waterfront with stunning views of the bay, the Embarcadero hosts a bold collection of public art and sculpture that will take your breath away. You can’t miss the gigantic bow and arrow that makes up the dramatic Cupid’s Span, the comical Yin & Yang with two massive heads rolling on the ground, and the Raygun Rocket Ship that never fails to put a smile on your face with its quirky science fiction-themed look that’s about to blast off into outer space.
The Embarcadero Center dates back to 1971, when the vision was launched for this area to be a vital element of the San Francisco art scene. Fine art in building lobbies and outdoor sculpture were incorporated into the design of the Center’s seven buildings. It’s easy to create your own walking art tour by downloading the sculpture tour map from the Embarcadero Center website. The best part is, many of these sculptures are just a short walk from the Hotel Griffon!
