A joint project between Chef Daniel Patterson and Minnesota Street Project, Alta at 1275 Minnesota Street completes the larger vision of the Minnesota Street Project as an urban catalyst created to strengthen San Francisco’s arts community. Open to the street, the 45-seat eatery is designed to become integral to life in the neighborhood as well as for the Project’s artists, galleries, programs, and visitors. 

Artwork at Alta
In 2015, Catherine Wagner was commissioned by Andy and Deborah Rappaport to photograph the transformation of the 1275 Minnesota Street building. She constructed photographs and made transitory sculptures as the skeletal space became a structured environment throughout the year. Wagner’s installation at Alta utilizes photographs that she created during the construction of the 1275 Minnesota Street art complex. Integrated into the architecture of the restaurant, her site-specific photographs depict images that solidify fleeting moments and the artist’s subtle interventions. Responding to transition and the materiality of the foundations for this important cultural center, the Alta installation presents what Wagner refers to as “an archeology in reverse”.  Wagner also created the artwork for Patterson’s Coi and Plum Bar.
