Breakfast: Breakfast in hotel

Morning: CLASS: The Stuff of Legend: California Palace of the Legion of Honor

Perched high above the Golden Gate at San Francisco’s Land’s End, the Legion of Honor was a gift to the city by Alma de Bretteville Spreckels. The neoclassical design was inspired by an 18th-century royal residence in Paris, taken over in 1804 by Napoleon to house his Légion d’Honneur, an order for civil and military merit. San Francisco’s Legion of Honor was completed in 1924, when it opened to the public on Armistice Day in memory of the 3,600 Californians who died in France during the First World War. Its primary purpose was to educate left-coasters on the glories of Western civilization.“The Legion” is known especially for its European decorative arts and painting, including three French period rooms and the exquisite Bowles Porcelain Gallery; ancient and classical art from North Africa, the Near East, Greece, the Aegean Islands, Etruria and Rome. It houses the Achenbach Foundation for Graphic Arts, making it a national destination for research into works on paper, from Rembrandt to Warhol.

Day Three: Wednesday, September 24 - de Young Museum/ SFMOMA: Transition and Transform...
Note: Walk several blocks to take public bus to the de Young Museum.

Breakfast: Breakfast in hotel

Morning: CLASS: De-Constructing de Young

First built as the fine arts pavilion for the 1894 Midwinter Exposition in San Francisco’s Golden Gate Park, the de Young Museum remains true to its world’s fair foundations. The newest iteration, completed in 2005, is a postmodern paean to art and nature. Its dramatic copper facade and ribbons of window capture light as if in a tree canopy. Interconnecting galleries form a shadowy path along which the visitor can explore art across time and around the globe. Oceanic art has been a featured element of the collection since the 19th century, including Maori meetinghouse carvings, Indonesian textiles, and Australian Aboriginal paintings. The African collection contains more than 180 objects from across the continent, arranged thematically. Discover the Americas through Mesoamerican and Andean funerary and religious objects; Teotihuacan murals; Maya, West Mexico, Pueblo, Inuit and Eskimo artworks; United States paintings, sculpture and decor, from colonial times to the present. See the world through textiles: cloth, felt, knitting, beading, embroidery, Turkmen carpets, North Indian silks, European tapestries, 20th-century couture by Dior, Balenciaga, and Chanel.

FIELD TRIP to the de Young Museum for a docent-led visit of the permanent collection.

Lunch: Independent lunch. Suggestions will be provided.

Afternoon: Independent exploration of the de Young.

Special exhibit: Modernism from the National Gallery of Art

The Robert and Jane Meyerhoff Collection brings paintings by the great masters of the post-war world to San Francisco. The de Young will feature nearly 50 works by Ellsworth Kelly, Roy Lichtenstein, Robert Rauschenberg, Jasper Johns, and Frank Stella, among others. The de Young is the exclusive venue for this exhibition, the first of the Meyerhoff Collection outside the greater Washington, DC, and Baltimore metro areas. This exhibition of modern and contemporary art will be organized into three generational groupings, allowing for a remarkable overview of American art from the end of World War II through the end of the century. Highlights of the exhibition include Stella’s Flin Flon IV (1969), Johns’ Perilous Night (1982), and Lichtenstein’s Painting with Statue of Liberty (1983). The centerpiece of the exhibition is Barnett Newman’s The Stations of the Cross (1958–66). This series of 15 paintings, widely considered to be the artist’s most important work, will be displayed for the first time ever as the artist intended—shown together within a discrete, chapel-like gallery devoted solely to the series. Beginning in 1985, Robert and Jane Meyerhoff began donating major works of post-war art to the National Gallery, and in 1987 signed an agreement with the National Gallery of Art for the eventual donation of their entire collection to the Gallery. Today, the Meyerhoff Collection stands as the largest donation ever to the National Gallery after Andrew Mellon’s original gift in 1937.

The de Young is located in Golden Gate Park. Other suggestions for the afternoon include visiting the Conservatory of Flowers, the Japanese Tea Garden or the California Academy of Sciences, all located within minutes from the museum.

Dinner: Group dinner will be at a locat restaurant.

Evening: SFMOMA: Transition and Transformation

This class highlights SFMOMA’s ongoing expansion project, which will greatly expand public space within the museum and more than double the existing gallery space, allowing the museum to showcase an expanded permanent collection along with the Doris and Donald Fisher Collection, one of the greatest private collections of contemporary art in the world. Beyond the physical changes, this transformation is about enhancing the visitor experience and sharing our love for art with people from the Bay Area community and beyond.

Day Four: Thursday, September 25 - Cantor Arts Center/Stanford University
Note: Bus trip to Cantor Arts Center at Stanford University. The bus trip is one hour each way. We will be on the Stanford campus for five hours.

Breakfast: Breakfast in hotel

Morning: CLASS: Unto the Generations: The Cantor Arts Center at Stanford University

In 1884, California railroad magnate and politician Leland Stanford, and his wife, Jane, lost their only son Leland, Jr. to typhoid fever on a cultural trip to Italy. All three were dedicated collectors, so Leland’s parents decided that his best memorials would be a museum and a co- educational university for “other people’s” children, producing “cultured and useful citizens.” Within 20 years, the museum was the largest privately owned art, archeological, and ethnological collection in the world. The Iris & B. Gerald Cantor Center for Visual Arts at Stanford, opened in 1999, houses the original Stanford family collection and personal effects as well as 5,000 years of fine arts, decorative arts, antiquities, created Africa, Europe, Asia, Oceania, and the Americas. View Philippine textiles, Old West landscape painting, mid-20th century abstracts, and contemporary mixed media.

Narrated FIELD TRIP to the Cantor Arts Center for a docent-led visit of the permanent collection.

Lunch: Lunch in Cool Cafe at the Cantor. Lunch cards will be provided.

Afternoon: Indepent exploration of the Cantor. Special exhibits: Sympathy for the Devil: Satan, Sin, and the Underworld: As Jackson Pollock’s important painting Lucifer comes to Stanford’s Anderson Collection, this exhibition explores the visual history of the Devil and his realm from the 16th to the 20th century. artists including Albrecht Dürer, Hendrick Goltzius, Jacques Callot, Gustav Doré, and Max Beckmann reveal how the Devil evolved from the bestial adversary of Christ to a rebellious, romantic hero or shrewd villain. The exhibition also reveals the artists’ inspiration: religious sources and accounts by Homer, Dante, Virgil, and Milton.

Artists Observe Nature: After 1600, it became increasingly common for draftsmen and printmakers to study nature closely and directly, rather than copy natural motifs from books and other artworks. This exhibition reveals the empiricist’s impulse to capture nature, with its fine detail and fleeting light effects, and record it on paper.

Night, Smoke, and Shadows: The Presence of Atmosphere in the 19th Century: Many artists active in the 19th century manipulated the appearance of atmosphere in order to create the illusion of space and texture, imply a mood, and even shape the narrative content of an image. They were inspired by industrialization and new ideas about optics and abstraction, and they exploited unprecedented opportunities to experiment with processes and materials. This exhibition includes artists James McNeill Whistler, Max Klinger, Félicien Rops, and Alvin Langdon Coburn.

Within and Without: Transformations in Chinese Landscapes: The landscape, the most prominent painting tradition in China, brings with it more than one thousand years’ worth of precedent and often has evolved in tandem with the social changes facing practicing Chinese artists.

FIELD TRIP: narrated walking exploration of Stanford's beautiful campus.

Dinner: Dinner will be on your own to explore the many cuisines available in San Francisco. Suggestions will be provided.

Evening: Independent evening to explore "The Golden Gate City." Suggested activity: See Beach Blanket Babylon, the longest running musical revue in theater history. It is a true San Francisco treat!

Breakfast: Breakfast in hotel

Morning: CLASS: West meets East at the Asian Art Museum

When private collector Avery Brundage left his Asian art treasures to the de Young Museum in the 1960s, he helped launched a half-century-long cultural rapprochement between San Francisco and Asia. The de Young of that day expanded physically and philosophically to accommodate the collection, while visitors expanded their view of the world. When the 1989 earthquake made that building obsolete, city voters passed a bond measure to convert the Civic Center’s beloved Beaux Arts library into an independent, state-of-the-art museum and center for Asian art and culture. “Asia is not one place,” says its vision statement. “The ideas and ideals that we call Asian are countless and diverse.” From the quiet of its galleries’ sacred and secular artifacts and modern artworks to its clamorous classrooms, art, music, dance and tradition bridge old and new worlds. Highlights include a Bronze Age ritual vessel in the shape of a rhinoceros, a Korean Buddhist painting recently created within the museum, and a comprehensive collection of jade carvings.

FIELD TRIP to the Asian Art Museum for a docent-led visit of the permanent collection.

Lunch: Independent lunch. Suggestions will be provided.

Afternoon: Independent exploration of the Asian Art Museum continues.

FIELD TRIP to SOMArts for a docent-led visit of the gallery featuring local artists.

Strauss with the awe-inspiring work of "Also sprach Zarathustra," a symphonic spectacular made famous in the film "2001: A Space Odyssey.

California Artists: From Figure to Funk/ Frida and Diego: Mexican Originals

Breakfast: Breakfast in hotel

Morning: California Artists: From Figure to Funk explores San Francisco Museum of Modern Art's history of showcasing California artists. The talk will focus on the Northern California scene from the 1950s through the 1980s, a period during which local artists, developed a rich visual culture. Highlights include works from celebrated artists such as Richard Diebenkorn, Wayne Thiebaud, David Park, Joan Brown, Robert Arneson, and Jay DeFeo. Questions such as who influenced whom, how did subject matter change, and palette & materials, provide an interesting opportunity to explore the works of California artists.

Frida and Diego: Mexican Originals highlights the artistic contributions of this exceptional couple. Frida Kahlo explored the realities of her life and feelings through her deeply personal art. The renowned Diego Rivera was a larger-than-life figure whose murals and paintings reflected his passion for his native country and the social, political and cultural issues of the day. The presentation also follows their riveting odyssey as a couple and highlights their many connections to the San Francisco Bay Area. (Courtesy of SFMOMA)
