580 California Street Specters
"A tourist laden with backpack, map and compass, admires the ghoulish specters over the building at 580 California Street. I can't resist offering the 411 on these unique icons of the City. I explain that sculptor Muriel Castanis created the three ghostlike figures on each side of the building in the early 1980s using fabric, epoxy, and fiberglass. Castanis had developed her technique sometime earlier when she found that cleaning rags, when soaked with glue, could be a used as a sculpting medium. The figures are titled, 'Three Models for 580 California.'" - Heart of the City 06/03/05
