San Francisco Tiled Steps – Art for Everyone to Enjoy

San Francisco is a very walk-able city and I have always been enchanted by the unexpected treasures that I have had the good fortune to discover as I’ve wondered through the city.  The tiled steps are absolutely one of those treasures.  There are tiled steps at multiple locations and they are public art installations constructed by artists with local support and maintained by the neighborhood residents and through donations.
Some of the most famous tiled steps in San Francisco are the 16th St Tiled Steps.  There are 163 steps they depict a mosaic of stars.  The tile steps are lovely and each section is unique plus the garden that frames the steps is an explosion of color and beauty.  The neighbors take full responsibility for the garden; they maintain it by the sweat of their brow and their own funds for plants and everything that is needed.  One has to admire their dedication and achievement.
