I came across this challenge, Pull Up a Seat Photo Challenge, from XingfuMama, in which she asks us to “create a post with a photo of places one sits or might sit, or art about sitting, and maybe a little background or story about the spot or a picture of the view.”
I thought back to a visit to the de Young Fine Arts Museum in San Francisco’s Golden Gate Park. We used to live about three blocks from the de Young, which has frequent themed exhibits. I took the photo below in 2018 because I thought it was intriguing.
I don’t remember the specific exhibit or even the artist, so I did a search today of my photo using an app on my iPhone, Reversee, and discovered that the piece of art is titled “Him and Her Hold the Root” by American artist Lonnie Holley in 1994. The work was part of an exhibit at the de Young of 20th century American decorative art in 2018.
So pull up seat and enjoy yourself. What’s that you say? You don’t think it looks very comfortable? Oh well, you can’t always get what you want.
