Exhibit by Dominican art department chair featured in new Presidio Center

The work of Lynn Sondag, chair of Dominican’s Department of Art, Art History and Design, is being exhibited in the new $5 million Presidio Visitor Center, which opens Saturday in San Francisco.

Sondag’s exhibit – “Who Shaped the Presidio Over Time?” – is featured is a series of “shadow boxes” enclosed in glass-front cases as part of the voices of the Voices of the Presidio exhibit.

“This most recent body of work ... is inspired by the vibrant natural, historical and cultural landscape of the Presidio National Park,” Sondag told the Marin Independent Journal on Thursday at the unveiling of the new center. “The Presidio is a place that connects people both across time periods, as well as within a single moment of time.”

The Presidio has influenced Sondag’s work. In 2015 her landscape paintings of trails for “The Presidio – Start Here: Explore, Play, Learn in a New Kind of National Park” were exhibited in the main branch of the San Francisco Public Library. As part of that program, she and Presidio Trust Chief Park Officer Michael Boland talked about the relationship between art and place at the Koret Auditorium.
