The Luna Rienne Parklet is a venue for public art. Rotating exhibitions - from installation to murals to landscaped plants and greenery - are designed by featured artists.
Be Here Now is our fourth parklet installation. Designed by Reuben Rude and built with fabricator Gregory Blum, it was completed in October 2015 to coincide with the artist’s gallery show of the same name. It features individually cut and painted wood columns for plants and seating in his signature style, and includes a shadow box-like porthole displaying a sculpture stating “You Are Here”.
The parklet is open from 8AM to 10PM daily, with portable seating available during gallery hours.
Third Parklet Installation
The third installation, Misinformation by Brian Barneclo, was completed in June 2014. It features wood cut designs on the interior walls and a contrasting mural on the exterior.
Second Parklet Installation
The second installation, Head In The Clouds by Ursula Xanthe Young, was completed in January 2013. It featured a 3D cityscape mural and outdoor theater set along with vintage victorian seating.
Head In The Clouds was mostly funded by a successful Kickstarter campaign.
Erik Otto designed and built our first parklet, titled The Peacekeeper. It was on display from September 2011 through November 2012 and received much written and televised press, as well as an SF Weekly Best of the Bay award. Moreover, it became a much-appreciated venue for public art and relaxation by neighbors and tourists.
To build and maintain the Parklet Gallery, as well as to facilitate artist stipends, we are seeking donations from individuals and organizations
Our deepest gratitude goes out to those who have donated their time, materials, and money to this public project, who we acknowledge on our PATRONS PAGE.
