The 16th Avenue Tiled Steps are one of San Francisco's hidden art gems located on Moraga Street between 15th & 16th Ave.
Apart from some amazing views of the city, you'll get to appreciate a beautiful mosaic running up 163 steps. Irish ceramist Aileen Barr and mosaic artist Colette Crutcher joined forces, working with over 300 community volunteers for over 2 1/2 years until they unveiled the project in August 2005.
The sweeping sea-to-sky design features over 2,000 handmade tiles and 75,000 fragments of tile, mirror and stained glass.
Beautiful intricate work. A must-see.ReplyDelete
