Dragon Fortune by Artist: Hung Yi Outside The Asian Art Museum San Francisco, California

You might recognize Dragon Fortune from Hung's whimsical menagerie, Fancy Animal Carnival, on view in Civic Center Plaza in the spring of 2015 -- that's when director Jay Xu fell in love with it. Grateful for the donation from Taipei's InSian Gallery, Xu is delighted by the dragon selfies proliferating across social media. He says, "Our building is historical and beautiful, but it's a little serious. The dragon offers a joyful, lighthearted counterbalance. It makes people smile." [from museum website]

Megan Wilson is a visual artist based out of San Francisco. Wilson's large-scale installations and public projects utilize a broad range of pop culture methodologies and aesthetics as a point of entry and engagement for the issues she addresses conceptually. She's used traditional crafts, interior design, and sign painting to explore the meanings of "home" and "homelessness"; public murals and street art as a strategy for challenging corporate values and the surface aesthetics of capitalism.
