DeYoung delight

Lobby mural

I had a really great day yesterday — I spent it all at the deYoung Museum in San Francisco, wandering through the galleries and soaking in all the amazing artwork. There is so much to see that although I spent a few hours, I still missed out on some wonderful stuff — namely, the current showcase, Ramses the Great and the Gold of the Pharoahs. But okay, you can’t have everything, right? I don’t feel too bad, because the works I did see were pretty awesome in their own right.

This Dale Chihuli piece from 1988 always makes me smile

Some of these are items I first saw on my previous visit in 2019, but there was so much that I missed before. This time I wanted to revisit a few of my favorites and explore all the rest that I had never seen. And I found so many wonders that were new to me, although some were familiar for one reason or another, like the Frederick Remington sculpture below. I shot a lot of pictures as I wandered, so I’ll be sharing more of my images in the near future!
