Floating Museum


Established by Hershman Leeson in 1974, The Floating Museum commissioned and exhibited temporary, site-specific art in public spaces, first in the San Francisco Bay Area and then more widely in the United States, Italy, and France. Over three hundred artists were supported by The Floating Museum during its four-year existence.
