The Serra work was shown on Spark, a decent arts show that only seems to
air on san francisco pbs:

Actually, I have successfully strode in to the Gap building to gaze upon
the Richard Serra work with no one bothering me about it. They even have
some nice chairs nearby for you to sit and contemplate.
Disclosure: I have succesfully strode in to many places I should not have
been so I will not be held responsible if you get the boot.
I'm not sure about getting in to the other galleries there, but they do
post hours for when they are open which suggests they are open to the
general public. perhaps.

Another Richard Serra is on more public view in SF, at the UCSF Mission
Bay campus; it was installed there last year.

- Sorry,
- I don't remember what show it was, KQED has a few shows that highlight

- artists.
- What I remember about that one was it showed how he built the 2 1/2 story
- sculpture that is inside the lobby of the Gap headquarters here in san
- francisco, on harrison and embarcadero.
- I used to go to the gap all the time for my job, to mix sound for their
- corporate meetings, and have had the privilege of seeing and experiencing
- that huge sculpture.
- (BTW the Fisher family, owners of the gap, have a huge privately held
- modern
- art collection. they have 2 galleries built in the same building I
- mentioned above to house their warhols, lichtenstiens and richters, among
- many others.) I have also had the privilege of spending time with that
- collection, when I went to work there.
- UNFORTUNATELY, you have to work at the Gap to get into the building, and
- especially the art gallery.
- it is very high security there........and those gap clone people dont
- seem
- to appreciate the amazing art that surrounds them....
- You can see the Serra piece through the window, but seeing it isnt what
- its
- about its more of a sound sculpture.
- Its really too bad that this amazing collection is only for a few........

- Does anyone know a source for films of Richard Serra forging some of his
- sculptures? I'm told the films (videos?) were made in the last ten years,
- perhaps in Germany and/or Finland.
