Experience the beauty of this month’s art exhibitions and variety of docent tours fit for the entire family by paying a visit to the de Young Museum this weekend (with festivities starting at 10:30am on Saturday, June 7th, 2008). Between 10:30am and 12pm – the art of Mesoamerica comes to life with “Doing & Viewing Art and Big Kids/Little Kids.” Adults may enjoy the docent-led tour of “Art of the Americas” between 11am and 11:50am while the kiddies are exploring new worlds.
At 12pm – gather for a tour of “Art in America to the 20th Century,” to discover intriguing sculptures, paintings, and decorative art. At 1pm – a docent tour sets off to present the permanent collections of Oceanic and African art.
If you missed the first “Doing & Viewing Art and Big Kids/Little Kids” held in the morning – you have a second chance to take a trip to Mesoamerica at 1:30pm. A popular tour featured at the end of the day is “Women: Worldly and Otherworldly” – which explores the female gender impact on some of the greatest works of art in the world (3pm to 3:50pm).
Overall, Art at de Young Museum is a real treat any time of the year! Next week – I suggest you mark your calendars for a celebration of glass-blown art and the arrival of a rather important art exhibit for San Francisco.
