Project Los Altos: SFMOMA in Silicon Valley

Artwork by Chris Johanson, Lincoln Park

I’m pleased to announce Project Los Altos: SFMOMA in Silicon Valley.

For the past year, the City of Los Altos and Passerelle Investment Company have been working together with the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art to bring this exciting exhibition to our beautiful city. Sited throughout the downtown core of Los Altos, nine artists have created works of art that explore the community of Los Altos along with the history and culture of the greater Silicon Valley.

Featured artists include Jeremy Blake, Spencer Finch, Charles Garoian, Christian Jankowski, Chris Johanson, Mike Mills, Kateřina Šedá, Alec Soth, and Jessica Stockholder.

Project Los Altos offers residents and visitors a unique opportunity to view and experience modern art. I hope you will take some time to explore Project Los Altos, now on display through March 2, 2014. Each of the indoor exhibition spaces are open Wednesday through Sunday from 10:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m., with the exception of artwork on display at the Costume Bank, which is open Wednesday, Thursday and Friday from noon to 5:00 p.m., Saturday 11:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. and Sunday 11:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. Outdoor works are accessible all day.
