Paintings by Linda Gass seen at Zuckerberg San Francisco General Hospital and Trauma Center, San Francisco - After the Gold Rush

After the Gold Rush

After the Gold Rush is Linda Gass' artwork that hangs beautifully on a wall at Zuckerberg San Francisco General Hospital and Trauma Center. It depicts the green California landscape.
“I grew up in California and have spent countless hours exploring the beauty of its mountains and deserts. In this quilt I have tried to beautify an unnatural landscape through a play of color and texture on silk. The landscape is I-5, a major transportation artery, crossing the California Aqueduct, the man-made river that moves water from north to south and irrigates farm fields in what once was a desert. This is the second mining of California and hence the name of the quilt."
