and yawning, look for the swimming
base of a friend, the hand of man

In celebration of this special anniversary, SFMOMA and Open Space join 75 other cultural institutions around the Bay Area in wishing the Golden Gate well, with an extended series of tribute posts throughout the long holiday weekend, beginning this morning.
