If you like all things classy and shiny, then the bling bling of the Bulgari exhibit which opened a couple of days ago at Golden Gate Park’s deYoung Museum is sure to impress. You don’t want to miss your chance to view The Art of Bulgari: La Dolce Vita & Beyond, 1950–1990 exhibit, which will be held at the Museum from now until February 17, 2014.
It’s not every day that you’ll get the up close-and-personal opportunity to explore the innovation and extravagance of Bulgari jewelry design. Some of the signature styles often associated with Bulgari that you will see include unusual color combinations, ancient coins mounted into gold, diamonds mingling with semiprecious stones, and bold architectural-like shapes.
The deYoung Museum exhibit will showcase 150 pieces created from the 1950s through the 1980s, where works of art reflected an influence of “Greco-Roman classicism, the Italian Renaissance, and the 19th-century Roman school of goldsmiths.” You’ll also get to browse sketches and other materials hailing from the Bulgari archives during your visit. Another highlight of the exhibit is encountering a handful of eye-catching pieces from the Elizabeth Taylor collection.
The cost to enjoy this exhibit is: Adults ($20–$22), seniors 65+ ($17–$19), students with current ID ($16–$18), and youths 6–17 ($10–$12). Members and children (5 and under) are free. Starting October 1, 2013, if you purchase an online ticket in advance, you will save $1 per ticket.
