The only one who came to San Francisco this time I found very interesting! __________ Even twice! Full name De Young Museum, designer is the same design Beijing Bird's Nest Herzog! On the ninth floor of the observation, you can see the city of San Francisco. The main pavilion has exhibition areas with various themes. The content of the exhibition should be different in different periods. Tickets with student ID can be discounted.
Diyang Museum, unexpected harvest, beyond imagination, so tall on the art museum, unexpectedly free! The Museum opened in 1919 and collected a large number of art treasures from all over the world. The building was seriously damaged during the earthquake in 1989. It was reopened in 2005 after renovation and design. It boarded the museum's viewing floor and had a panoramic view of San Francisco Bay and Golden Gate Park.
Should be the only paid attraction on my trip (only to find that the next day is a free visit day, I), you can walk slowly for three hours, the exhibits have impressed me. Finally, on the sixth (or fifth) floor, when I got out of the elevator, I had a "wow" noise.
The Diyang Art Museum in San Francisco's Golden Gate Park, named after the early San Francisco newspaperman Diyang, is the product of the California Winter International Exposition of 1894. It was opened in 1895 when the earthquake struck in 1989. The new building was reopened on October 15, 2005. It was interesting to see that the copper-clad outside of the building changed its color every day due to oxidation.
As we were going to go to Paris and visit Musee d'Orsay, I wanted to go see the Birth of Impressionism exhibit that was going at the De Young Museum.The BF picked up tickets and off we went. Having done the King Tut exhibit before this, we knew where to go and what to expect in terms of lines and the crowds.Starting with "The Birth of Venus", it leads to you a wonderful tour of the beginnings of Impressionism with Manet and then with Monet, Renoir, Degas, and so many more. I saw some of my favorite Impressionist artwork in front of me and I didn't even need to go to Paris!Beautiful exhibit and I spent far too long staring at the artwork as the bf impatiently waited for me to finish. I picked up a copy of my favorite Degas picture, "The Dancing Lesson" to hang up after leaving the exhibit.It was a wonderful way to get me in the mood for Paris. I can't wait for the next exhibit!
Visiting the de Young is a fantastic way to be introduced to American art of all periods. The museum has a diverse collection of pieces since it was founded in 1895, which includes 27,000 works of art, such as sculptures, paintings, works on paper, costumes and textiles. From April through November the de Young organizes a free Friday night event where public is invited to come to the museum and enjoy a performance. There are lectures, artists demonstrations, hands-on activities, and more. Make sure you check out the Hamon tower, where you get a 360 degree view of San Francisco through the glass walls that surround the platform.
This is my favorite museum. Check out the Ruth Asawa wire sculptures hanging from the ceilings of the space, go up to the tower for a view of the entire city and go to the sculpture garden in the back of the museum. If you follow the path past the cafe in the sculpture garden towards what looks like a maintenance area you'll find a strange dome shaped secret space. You'll be in for a treat. Sculpture garden is free and this site lists all SF Museum free days http://freemuseumday.org/sf.html
I really enjoy going to the De Young Museum they always have interesting exhibits. I particularly enjoy how they will have curator talks for some of the special exhibits. Also, if you're going on a Sunday check out Lindy in the Park that is happening right around the corner from the De Young. There's usually a great crowd of dancers out enjoying swing music and it's fun to watch or take the lesson at the beginning of their event! And then head to the De Young :).
This art gallery is housed in a relatively new architectural masterpiece by swiss architects Herzog + De Meuron. The most impressive feature is the observation / administration tower which can be accessed without paying admission to the museum and has fabulous 360 degree views highlighting the hilly nature of the city. Views of the rest of Golden Gate Park, Lands End, the Presidio, glimpses of the Golden Gate bridge, distant views of downtown. A must for all.
