Discover celebrated artist Lawrence Weiner’s playful ground-based mural OUT OF SIGHT on the Exploratorium’s Plaza. Open-ended text arranged in a hopscotch pattern invites viewers to navigate the work by their own impulse, interpreting it and interacting with it along the way.

The presentation of OUT OF SIGHT was organized by and in collaboration with Fort Mason Center for Arts & Culture. The multilingual, hopscotch-like medallions or marelles (French for hopscotch) will also be presented at San Francisco’s Fort Mason and in the Dogpatch neighborhood, at 1275 Minnesota Street by the McEvoy Foundation for the Arts and the Minnesota Street Project.

OUT OF SIGHT is a participatory, interactive, social sculpture designed for all. It can be adapted for different institutions, distinct sites, and specific communities, and has been shown in public spaces including the Chicago Park District; the downtown shopping district of Kortrijk, Belgium; the Pérez Art Museum in Miami; and the National Gallery of Victoria in Melbourne, Australia.

OUT OF SIGHT is a project of See The Vision, Grab The Vision, a 501(c)(3) dedicated to producing innovative public art and programming designed to engage, inspire, and empower youth and participants of all ages.
