A romantic approach is attempted in Golden Gate Theatre Meets Tower. This linear drawing is graphite and pastel on aircraft metal. The power plant tower of 6th Street is overlooking the Golden Gate Theatre, while the street light on the left goes skyward. These guardian structures stand individual and harmonious.

The Golden Gate Theatre was designed by the architect G. Albert Lansburgh in the 1920's. He said, “form and function must compliment one another…a theatre must not only be beautiful but completely functional”. The theatre showed silent films for over 50 years. During the 1960’s, it was converted into a two-screen theatre. It suffered little damage, restored as a single auditorium and reopened in 1979 as a Performing Arts Center.

Golden Gate Theatre meets Tower was first exhibited during Patricia's Solo Show titled New Paintings, at SOMA Gallery, San Francisco, March 2004, and was sold in 2005. In 2008, this drawing was exhibited at HEART OF THE CITY: Two Person Art Exhibit and Book Release - Patricia Araujo and Mark Ellinger, at the North of Market/Tenderloin Community Benefit District Corporation, San Francisco, CA. (6 months exhibition).

Golden Gate Theatre meets Tower is featured in Patricia's book entitled, SOMA SEEN, published in 2008, and sold in 2010 to a new Private Collector in Denver.
