Matt Passmore: Tied/Untied
Fort Mason Center for Arts & Culture
Fort Mason Center for Arts & Culture (FMCAC) is proud to present Matt Passmore‘s Tied/Untied. This striking sculpture helps to define the entrance to FMCAC, offering visitors a place to gather, wonder, and foster curiosity.
Echoing the historic track inside FMCAC’s campus, the railroad-tie sculpture lifts dramatically out of the ground, creating playful loops and arcs for visitors to sit or walk through. Tied/Untied is abstract but looks vaguely familiar, possibly referencing its surroundings through a nautical knot mid-tie, or the rolling tides of the bay. This playful form gestures to the material and history of Fort Mason and the San Francisco waterfront.
