SF 49

SF49, mixed media, map collage on canvas, 24”x24”

A new map of San Francisco made from old maps.  The original is 24”x24” and made from a series of 49 cut outs of the San Francisco map.  It is made from maps of many of the different places where San Franciscans originally came from before coming home to the City we love.  Over 100 countries are represented in the finished piece.  The 49 maps are laid out in a 7x7 grid — a nod to the “7x7 mile” size of our City that is approximately, very approximately, 49 square miles.  It’s the City where 49 is an especially magical number.

Prints, phone, laptop, iPad covers and more available with this image from Society 6.
