Andy Goldsworthy’s Tree Fall Opens October 19
FOR-SITE is excited to announce the opening weekend of Tree Fall, a new work by artist Andy Goldsworthy in San Francisco’s Presidio, this Saturday, October 19, and Sunday, October 20!
Docents will be on hand to chat and answer your questions such as:
How did that tree get in there?!
Where did all that clay come from?
What is a Powder Magazine, and why did the artist decide to create an installation inside it?
. . . and, of course, anything else you’re curious about!
The process that brought this project to fruition is an interesting one, and we’re eager to tell you all about it — from the measures taken to ensure the protection of the building’s historic fabric, to the glorious mess that is working with clay. To catch a glimpse in advance, check out FOR-SITE’s “behind the scenes” slideshow on the project page.
When you stop by, why not make a day of it by visiting all three of Goldsworthy’s Presidio works? The Presidio Trust made this great map to help you navigate the 2.7 miles of beautiful Presidio trails between Spire, Wood Line, and Tree Fall:
As well, on Sunday Off the Grid hosts its “Picnic at the Presidio” on the Presidio’s Main Parade Ground right near Tree Fall — so get your foodie fix, hit the trails, and experience Andy Goldsworthy’s beautiful Presidio installations!
Even if you don’t make it this weekend, Tree Fall will be on view throughout the fall on Saturdays and Sundays from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., with additional weekday hours by appointment (415.561.5330). Plan your visit.

Hope to see you in the Presidio!
