Pier 33 - San Francisco
“The misconception of totalitarianism is that freedom can be imprisoned. This is not the case. When you constrain freedom, freedom will take flight and land on a windowsill.”
— Ai Weiwei
The Chinese artist Ai Weiwei is internationally renowned for work that defies the distinction between art and activism. In this exhibition of new works created specifically for Alcatraz, Ai responds to the island’s layered legacy as a 19th-century military fortress, a notorious federal penitentiary, a site of Native American heritage and protest, and now one of America’s most visited national parks. Revealing new perspectives on Alcatraz, the exhibition raises questions about freedom of expression and human rights that resonate far beyond this particular place.
Tour includes Ferry to Alcatraz, 45 minute docent tour, Cell House audio tour and souvenir. This tour is being given at a significantly discounted rate for the Sonoma County Museum.
Note: We will meet at Pier 33 in San Francisco at 8am. Transportation to the ferry terminal is not included. Snacks will be provided.
Tour is limited to 40 participants.
