First Tuesday in San Francisco


Last week I went to the MOMA (Museum of Modern Art) in San Francisco, and saw some great art exhibits. Before I go into detail about my visit, if you are ever visiting San Francisco make sure it is the first week of the month. Every first Tuesday of the month you can visit several museums in the city for FREE! A complete list, including many museums that are always free, can be found here. A few notables are the de Young, California Academy of Sciences and Legion of Honor.

The MOMA currently has an exhibit of work by Cindy Sherman. You can view the exhibit until 10/8/12. I have read about her before, but was pleasantly surprised to see her art in person. She has an amazing ability to really dissect the human nature and pop culture through her photos.

There were many great exhibits including a permanent collection of modern art by a variety of artists. My plan is to visit the de Young and get a dose of American fine art on the next free Tuesday in October.

Legion of Honor – ancient art, European art, photography, sculpture

California Academy of Sciences – planetarium, indoor rainforest, aquarium, natural history museum, animal attraction, earthquake exhibit

Heading to San Francisco, why not check out some art!
