Manifest Destiny! Reception
February 18, 20124:00 PM – 6:00 PM
Hotel des Arts, 447 Bush St, San Francisco, CA
Jenny Chapman and Mark Reigelman’s Manifest Destiny! is a temporary rustic cabin occupying one of the last remaining unclaimed spaces of downtown San Francisco – above and between other properties. Using a 19th-century architectural style and vintage building materials, the structure is both homage to the romantic spirit of the Western Myth and a commentary on the arrogance of Westward expansion. The installation will remain in place and be slowly transformed by the elements through October 2012.
