16th Avenue San Francisco

4 years ago

I`ve been to San Francisco but unfortunately at the time didn`t know about these steps, otherwise I would have visited them! These steps are on 16th and Moraga and were inspired by the world-famous steps in Rio de Janeiro. Irish ceramist Aileen Barr and mosaic artist Colette Crutcher joined forces, working with over 300 community volunteers for over a two and a half year period until they unveiled the project in August 2005. All of the sponsors names are woven into the design and over 2,000 handmade tiles and 75,000 fragments of tile, mirror and stained glass went into the finished piece. It looks really amazing and I would love to see this in person.

Have you ever been to these stairs in San Francisco?
