Paying Up

The "Three Heads Six Arms" art piece at Civic Center is being shipped back to China next Spring. This is a disappointment for bigwigs like Sen. Dianne Feinstein, who helped get the statue here, but couldn't pull any strings to get an extension on its visit. But that isn't stopping San Francisco from raising funds to pay what it owes for hosting the exhibit in Civic Center. This past Tuesday, the Board of Supes approved a $70,000 grant from the National Endowment for the Arts to help pay for the piece by Zhang Huan. The total cost for the exhibit is about $150,000.
