SEE EVENT DETAILS
Ravit Baer, Deputy Consul General of Israel to the Pacific NorthwestJonathan Curiel, Journalist—Moderator

Our distinguished panel will discuss the San Francisco-Haifa sister city relationship and the two identical, temporary sculptures that sit over 7,000 miles apart. One sculpture can be found on Pier 27; the other can be seen on Haifa’s shoreline. Using art and technology to celebrate both cities’ vibrancies, these sculptures are interactive, cultural collaborations that allow visitors to view live feed across oceans and connect with one another. The remarkable sculptures, resembling lighthouses, were created by Saron Paz, an Israeli experience designer, and the San Francisco artist Matthew Passmore. The sculptures are dedicated to former Mayor Ed Lee.
