Two life-size bronze sculptures of great cats by Los Angeles artist Gwynn Murrill, Cougar III (pictured) and Tiger 2, now prowl the entry plaza of the San Francisco Zoo. A new interactive environmental installation at the Zoo, Split Mound, by Southern California artists Barbara McCarren and Jud Fine, was also dedicated as part of the San Francisco Arts Commission’s “Sculpture in the City” program. Other public sculptures to be dedicated in 2003 include work at Union Square, San Francisco International Airport, Moscone Center West, Fillmore Street Bridge at Geary Boulevard, and the Embarcadero.
