Sneak Preview: The DeYoung Museum

After reading a fabulous article about how the new DeYoung has exceeded all expectations for attendance and accolades, I am so thrilled to become a small part of their operations there- as my work will soon be sold in their beautiful museum store. I love the combination of periods they embrace--wander from tribal art to mid century ceramics to a Kiki Smith installation and then finally hit the just opened part 2 classic impressionist exhibit on loan from the Musee de Orsay in Paris-quite the art tour encased in a stunning building with lush landscaping and provocative sculptures peppered among the grasses. Plus--I can see its pyramid like formation rising from the trees in Golden Gate Park from my house.

So I will trot down the few blocks to deliver some of these pieces to them this week-
Go to the museum and take it all in-oh and do not forget to stop at Sam's Chowderhouse food truck if you are there on a friday saturday sunday--the lobster roll is a work of art in itself...
