International Orange Exhibition
On Memorial Day weekend an unprecedented art exhibition honoring the 75th anniversary of the Golden Gate Bridge will open at Fort Point. Scott Shafer gets a sneak preview with a visit to the studio of artist Anandamayi Arnold, who is making a vibrant series of dresses made almost entirely from crepe paper. The colorful creations pay homage to the Spanish-style dresses worn by the "Fiesta Queens" who helped kick off the Golden Gate Bridge's opening ceremonies in 1937.
