The Raygun Gothic Rocketship has been at Pier 14 for 2 1/2 years. It has been a fun piece of art for San Francisco. I am very sad about the Rocketship’s departure and I feel like a little bit of San Francisco is leaving. When I was the blogger for the Black Rock Arts Foundation I wrote about the Rocketship a lot, as you can see if you click here. Now it is leaving and last night the Space Cowboys put on a street party. While I was there I met the lovely and interesting, Miss Kitty Stryker, who was part of the Rocketship crew. I loved her uniform, and loved it even more when she told me that when she had it made she told the designer that she needed ruffles and cleavage and fun. So I thought you might like to see how that turned out.
And yes, the party rocked and then the Bay Lights came on. It was a special moment, that last time these two fabulous pieces of art would been seen together.
