  • Village Artist Project: Floating Garden of Emotions

    Workshops & Activities, For Families, and part of Art/Lit Living Innovation Zone: Program Activations

    Feb 04


    11 AM—2 PM

    Corner of Fulton and Larkin

    Stop by the corner of Fulton and Larkin streets on the first Sunday of each month to join our Village Artist in a free, collaborative, hands-on activity. Every three months, a different artist or group takes over the LIZ to engage the community with interactive creative projects.

    In February, tap into your feels with the Floating Garden of Emotions, inspired by Paul and Eve Ekman’s famed Atlas of Emotions, an interactive tool used to navigate the complex world of human feelings. Translating the Ekmans’ atlas into a temporary immersive experience, this whimsical participatory program invites you to explore your own emotional journey. Designed to facilitate a better understanding of our own and others’ emotions, this creative exercise encourages us to become more compassionate beings.
    About the Art/Lit LIZ

    As part of a city initiative to revive underutilized public spaces with art, performance and community activities, San Francisco has created several Living Innovation Zones (LIZ). We are honored to share a LIZ with the San Francisco Public Library: the Art/Lit LIZ, on the corner of Fulton and Larkin streets. The Art/Lit LIZ is a platform for installations, performances, art-making and other events and includes a 30-foot-long mural wall that presents a rotating display of site-specific artworks. 


The Village Artist Corner is funded through the generosity of The Family of Tania Vonelleese Seymour and San Francisco Grants for the Arts. Founding program support was made possible by Housing-Related Parks Program from the State of California, facilitated by San Francisco Recreation and Parks Department; The Hearst Foundations; California Arts Council; and The NFL Foundation and 50 Fund, the legacy fund of the Super Bowl 50 Host Committee. Support for community engagement at the Asian Art Museum is provided by The Walter & Elise Haas Fund.
