The Rhythm of Baker Beach

You’ll hear the waves under the Golden Gate Bridge
You’ll hear the seagulls sing to each other
I hear the calm waves soothe my soul
I feel the cool air gently hug me
You’ll feel the bright sun on your skin
I feel the magic water touching my feet

Artist Interpretations

Alice Wu
Two pigeons fly joyously in front of the Golden Gate Bridge

Annie Aguilar
Woman plays harp on a sandy beach surrounded by musical notes and seagulls. The Golden Gate Bridge and the hills are in the background.

Isabel Lombardi-Coronel
Giant paper-based person with long hair stands in the water as a giant wave crashes over the Golden Gate Bridge with the hills behind. Origami birds fly in the sky.

Natalie Deiner
Golden Gate Bridge rises above a deep blue stylized water. The brown hills stand beyond. The sky is a leave-texture pink.

Vilma Ramirez
A grey textured sky hangs above the blue of the sea and the yellow of the sand
