Year of the Dog Critter Dude

Narrow little strips of land adjoining Octavia Avenue in the gentrified Hayes Valley neighborhood have been turned into art-filled gardens by a group called Hayes Valley Art Works.

The eventual plan is to build extremely narrow housing on these spots, but for the time being they are an oasis of green.

Last month there was an art opening celebrating the Chinese Zodiac's Year of the Dog and the above sculpture is a wonderfully surreal addition to the neighborhood. The shoes are a particularly nice touch.
