Bufano Sculpture at Westside Courts

IMG_0686

Walking over to Target, saw something out of the corner of my eye. Sure enough, it was a sculpture by Beniamino Benevenuto Bufano. Bufano was a great sculptor and a San Francisco character.

Westside Courts

This sculpture of St. Francis on a horse is situated in the Westside Courts housing project.

Westside Courts was built in 1945. Though well-kept, these boxy concrete buildings have passed their useful lifespan. I hope they can be replaced without anyone losing their place.
