Maze Monument to Human Rights

Daniel Crowe

Daniel’s work is rooted in plein-air landscape painting but ends in playful mazes. He creates two-dimensional contour images, which are also representative of three-dimensional space. All are taken from plein-air painting road trips and residencies and constitute a travelogue through which I retrace my own steps. The lines form a maze with a solution. As you wander through his constructed landscapes, he invites you to consider the land around you. He grew up in the suburbs of New York City but has been adopted by the Bay Area, where hiking, camping, and painting all go hand-in-hand.

Hearts in San Francisco Project

The Hearts in San Francisco project debuted in 2004 with 131 heart sculptures, created by local Bay Area artists and auctioned by the Foundation in support of Zuckerberg San Francisco General Hospital and Trauma Center.

The Foundation raised nearly 3 million dollars for ZSFG in that first year. Today, we carry on this tradition by commissioning and auctioning a new set of hearts each year. The funds raised support those delivering on the promise of accessible and equitable health care for all in our city.
