Explore winds, tides, and natural phenomena. Investigate forces shaping the City, Bay, and region. Watch shifting winds and tides, reveal hidden life, shake a bridge, observe human behavior, and find new ways to notice the places we inhabit.
A number of outdoor exhibits at the Exploratorium offer the chance to experience contemporary art in the summer sun (or fog, as the case may be). Check out Doug Hollis’ “Aeolian Harp,” 1976, a 27-foot-tall harp sculpture strummed by the wind; Fujiko Nakaya’s “Fog Bridge #72494,” 2013, a living installation of fog spanning along the pedestrian bridge between Piers 15 and 17, has been temporarily turned off due to the drought.
