As part of a series of celebrations marking its fiftieth anniversary, school children from across San Francisco are invited to participate in an arts program at the Transamerica Pyramid – Pyramid Dreams.
In 1979, a seven-year-old boy from Israel – Michael Shvo – visited San Francisco and saw the Transamerica Pyramid for the first time. When he returned home, he dreamed that he would return one day and made a drawing capturing that dream. Today, he is its proud owner and custodian.
Pyramid Dreams invites school children to dream big – the same way that seven-year-old boy did all those years ago – so that they too can make all their dreams come true. The children will view an exhibition about the Transamerica Pyramid and San Francisco’s history while participating in an off-site class where they will create their own drawings of this iconic structure.
Over the course of the next year, a committee comprised of Mayor London Breed, Pritzker-Laureate Lord Norman Foster, and Chairman & CEO of SHVO Michael Shvo will select fifty works from the program that will form a public exhibition and be showcased in prominent locations throughout San Francisco including the Transamerica Pyramid itself.
