Our Silences make a bold statement in San Francisco...

This week with a good friend in town visiting L.A. we cashed in some frequent flyer miles to do an overnight trip to San Francisco to check out some wonderful bars, eateries and some of the latest outdoor art to fill the streets of the City by the Bay.

This display of tall sculptures by Mexican artist Rivelino called 'Our Silences' or 'Nuestros Silencios' comprises ten large bronze figures and symbolize the importance of free speech and self censorship.

This traveling public art installation has already visited numerous countries around the world, including Mexico, Portugal, Spain, Belgium, Russia, Italy, Germany and the U.K., so it was nice to spot the towering statues in front of San Francisco's landmark Ferry Building along the Embarcadero this week.

These imposing statues are a real spectacle and are exactly the intriguing outdoor artwork I love to see on my travels, and it obviously helps when the glorious weather helps to showcase them so wonderfully.

They kind of remind me of the A-maze-ing Laughter sculptures from Vancouver, mostly because of the multiple statues I think, but if you like these, be sure to check out these other 25 cool outdoor sculptures from my travels around the world.

Stay tuned for even more fab discoveries from my latest excursion to San Francisco, which really is one of my favourites cities to visit, especially because you can walk all over in comparison to the sprawling City of Angels where I live.
