2/18: Manifest Destiny! Reception @ SoEx Off-Site

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.

The installation will remain in place and be slowly transformed by the elements through October 2012.
