Perhaps you cannot see your next art piece beyond the trees or you feel you’ve lost your way. Take a look at someone who has not only found his path but built it to suit his fancy. I just discovered an artist who has like many great artists before him, devoted a lifetime to one piece of art. Scott Weaver has spent the last 35 years fabricating a whimsical rendition of the city of San Francisco made entirely of toothpicks! Not only is it an incredible ping-pong ball run with several seperate runs, giving tours of certain parts of the city, it also is a homage to the history and heart of San Fransisco.
So the next time you pick up a toothpick to scrape that broccoli out of your tooth, just imagine what else could be done with it!
Scott Weaver’s intricate San Fran artwork will be on display in the Tinkering Studio until June 19th, 2011.
He is currently showing at the Tinkering Studio inside the Exploratorium at the Palace of Fine Arts, 3601 Lyon Street, San Francisco, CA.
