Sunnyside Menagerie Update


“The real voyage of discovery consists not in seeking new landscapes but in having new eyes.” -Marcel Proust

Following years of planning leading to over a year of extensive renovations, Sunnyside Conservatory is nearing completion, and wowhaus recently made a final site visit to confirm locations for our Sunnyside Menagerie prior to installation. Thanks to the Conservatory designers’ wonderful feel for period detail and dedication to following the collective vision of the community and agencies of the City of San Francisco, the Conservatory has been updated to code while respecting its fantastical, nineteenth century origins. Our cast bronze creatures of the Sunnyside Menagerie were funded by the San Francisco Arts Commission and will be installed early next month by Atthowe Fine Art Services. The official opening ceremony is tentatively scheduled for early December. Please stay tuned for details!
