The 1903 monument in Union Square is dedicated to Admiral George Dewey for his victory in Spanish-American War. The goddess Nike atop is modeled after San Francisco’s famous socialite Alma de Bretteville Spreckels, a prominent art patron. Spreckels’s other legacy in San Francisco includes California Palace of Legion of Honor museum, and Maritime Museum. Just behind Union Square, between Apple Store and Grand Hyatt Hotel is San Francisco Fountain (not shown) created by Ruth Asawa. Asawa is most famous for her wicker basket sculptures.
