Rex May's icon 49 Mile Drive sign, which debuted at the 1939 Golden Gate International Exposition, has been a source of inspiration and whimsy for San Francisco artist Annie Galvin since she arrived in this city from Ireland over 20 years ago. 49 Reasons Why I Love You, which opened at Zinc Details (one of San Francisco's best modern design stores) in San Francisco February 5, is Annie's valentine to San Francisco. The show features forty-nine new, original paintings inspired by the sign, hung in a 7x7 grid, providing an intriguing visual metaphor for San Francisco's geography. You can purchase the artist's original art and prints on at 3 Fish Studios .
