16th Avenue Tiled Steps Project
Beautiful Staircase Mosaic
(between 15th and 16th Aves)
San Francisco, CA 94122
The 16th Avenue Steps feature a beautiful tile mosaic covering 163 steps with imaginative fish, water, and animal imagery. This celebration of color was a group effort; San Francisco artists Aileen Barr and Collette Crutcher gave guidance to over 300 neighbors who helped with the project. In addition, over 220 individuals donated handmade tiles to produce the innovative work of community art. But this San Francisco original is not just a celebration of local talent--it's also a demonstration of San Francisco's unique (and often preposterous) topography. This is one of the city's many dizzying climbs that you won't forget.
