The Asian Art Museum
San Francisco, California

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.

1. Blanket the streets with plum blossoms. Find loose rose petals on sidewalk. Rest body against warm concrete. Glimmer of the memory garden.

2. Follow the trial of invisible bees. Nectar guides for the lost ones. Fling lasso into summer darkness. Hear whistles and megaphone.

3. Hold body to body. Breathe in the greenhouse. Wear wet glitter and silver hose. Lick salt on skin.

4. Catch whispers in libraries. Greet strangers with acorns and grapefruit. Remember eyes, ghosts, smoke. Watch brothers as they disappear.

A large orange flower was painted next to a small yellow flower, which in turn was painted near a blue flower in bright sunlight.
