An art gallery shaped like a dragon designed and built by San Francisco’s youth.

The Art/Lit (Art and Literature) is a public sculpture and art gallery on the corner of Fulton and Larkin Streets adjacent to the Asian Art Museum. The installation was designed by a team of youth in the Architecture Program at Youth Art Exchange, who were inspired by dragons—mythological creatures found in the art and literature of many different cultures and time periods. Their dragon is stylized into a blocky, origami-like shape, and is decorated with a myriad of patterns found on artwork in the collections of the Asian Art Museum. The body of the dragon features a thirty-foot long canvas for a changing program of mural art; the first mural will be painted by local artist Megan Wilson.
