Obscura Society SF Salon: Big Art with the Five Ton Crane

Join us at DNA Lounge for an evening dedicated to the Bay Area's extraordinary large scale art projects with special guests from the Five Ton Crane arts collective

The last decade in the Bay Area has become the epicenter of a very specific type of large scale industrial arts projects. From Burning Man installations, to local site-specific pieces and temporary environments, we'll be looking at the creative environment and the stories behind some of our favorite installations.

Joining us for the evening to share stories: The Oakland based arts collective Five Ton Crane had produced several amazing large works from the Steampunk Treehouse, to the Raygun Gothic Rocketship (until recently on display at the Embarcadero) and the Vernian-inspired mobile art vehicle, the Nautilus.

General admission: $12, advance tickets recommended
