About the Village Artist CornerThe Village Artist Corner features rotating murals and monthly programs at the dragon sculpture on the corner of Fulton and Larkin Streets adjacent to the Asian Art Museum. The program was developed as part of Groundplay, a City collaboration co-led by the Mayor’s Office of Civic Innovation, San Francisco Planning, and the San Francisco Arts Commission.
Designed by San Francisco public high school students in the Architecture Program at Youth Art Exchange, the sculpture is inspired by mythological creatures found in the art and literature of many different cultures and time periods. Our dragon is decorated with a myriad of patterns found on artwork in the Asian Art Museum’s collection. Over the next two years, the intended life of the project, the sculpture and area around it will be programmed with monthly activities and new mural openings. Monthly activities take place on the first Sunday and the second Wednesday of each month.
