Join the Friends of the Haggerty for a tour led by Director Susan Longhenry of the visual arts bounty of San Francisco, the Bay Area and Silicon Valley. With the 2016 opening of the remodeled and expanded San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, the Bay Area has taken itself one step closer to the arts destinations of NYC and London. The newly re-opened SFMOMA, designed by the Norwegian firm Snohetta, is both stunning and understated with total gallery space of 117,000 square feet. In addition to the tour of SFMOMA, the trip features visits to the city’s long-established centers for art, the de Young Museum and the Legion of Honor. Other stops in SF include the Asian Art Museum and the Yerba Buena Center for the Arts. An afternoon trip to Berkeley and Oakland will feature tours of the University of California Berkeley Art Museum and the Oakland Museum of California. The final full day of the trip includes a tour of the Cantor Center for the Visual Arts at Stanford University, the de Saisset Museum at the University of Santa Clara and a tour of a private collection. Sign up early, space is limited. For the complete itinerary, click here.
