Last Friday night was our first artist-led tour of the galleries. We had a great time seeing Ruth Asawa’s sculptures, wandering through the contemporary galleries and Wilsey Court, and finishing up in the James Turrell sculpture in the garden. During each tour we will be performing quotes gathered from visitors who participated in our residency. The tour adds the voices of the museum patrons to experiencing the art collections at the de Young. Tours leave from the Kimball Education Gallery on Fridays at 7 p.m. Remaining tour dates are 7/17, 7/24 and 7/31. We hope to see you on a tour!
Our mobile cart was also out on Friday night with Chris at the helm. Stop by to tell us about your favorite artwork at the museum, or pick up one of our postcards featuring our artist renditions of the de Young collection and quotes from the museum visitors.
