This focal point of the Sarofim Picnic Lawn is by San Francisco artist Doug Hollis. Hollis likes to work with natural phenomena: in this case - water and mist.
The mist is created by eighty nozzles that form a mist cloud in the bowl of the stainless-steel sculpture, while a circular pan creates a rain curtain around the perimeter. The water is re-circulated and filtered, and it automatically shuts off if the wind threatens to scatter too much water.
There are no set hours for the Mist Tree.
