Canadian design, art and culture blog Inhabit chose Why Is That Bridge Orange? as one of their 5 San Francisco Books You Should Read This Summer. Art Peterson’s book got the author of the story excited: “Finally, a city guide written by someone who knows and loves the city!”
We Wanna Be Friends With: SF Historian and Author Art Peterson is the title of a new story on 7×7 Magazine’s website. Rachel Amy Shavar talks with Art about his new book Why Is That Bridge Orange? and finds out about his favorite restaurants, parks and hangouts in San Francisco – and whether he is a burger or burrito person.
Art Peterson’s essay on the Vaillancourt Fountain was featured on FoundSF today – San Francisco’s digital archive that presents “over 1800 unique stories, images, and videos from past and present.” The essay tells the story of a fountain that at one point was scheduled to be demolished because it was too expensive to maintain and lured the homeless to sleep in it.
