Each trek concludes with a meal and gathering on the water. The Mission Creek Walk is part of Southern Exposure’s Off Shore, running May 28 through July 3. Abandoning the limitations of solid ground, five artists create new projects considering the boats, creeks, nautical communities and very edges of San Francisco.

In a large-scale environmental drawing, Sollars traverses the coast of San Francisco, dragging behind a pointed staff that literally draws a line in the sand. In another epic work, he revisits John Cheever's short story The Swimmer, navigating his way across the city through pools and fountains in a Speedo. Echoing the tradition of Venetian grotto furniture, Sollars created a waterfront studio in the Bayview and repurposed a series of barnacle-encrusted objects pulled in from the bay for use back in town. stevenwolffinearts.com/dynamic/exhibit_artist.asp?ExhibitID=130 Chris Sollars, work revolves around the reclamation and subversion of public space through interventions and performance. Sollars has exhibited and performed in numerous venues nationally and internationally and in 2013 received a Guggenheim Fellowship.
