Danny Lyon: Message to the Future
Danny Lyon, American photographer and filmmaker, has always immersed himself in the lives of his subjects, which range from 1960s civil rights protestors to motorcycle gang members and Texas prison inmates. He lives their lives, becoming one of them. View American history through Lyon's photographic records in this docent presentation from the Fine Arts Museums of San Francisco. With his ability to find beauty in the starkest reality, Danny Lyon has provided a charged alternative to the bland vision of American life often depicted in the mass media.
Monet: The Early Years
Don't miss this wonderful opportunity to experience Monet's mastery before the advent of Impressionism. View depictions of moments both large and small, with friends and loved ones, in the solitude of forests and fields and in the quiet scenes of everyday life in this docent-led presentation from the Fine Arts Museums of San Francisco.
Stuart Davis: In Full Swing
Discover the art, life, and times of Stuart Davis, a key figure in American Modernism. View works spanning the artist's entire career, from his 1920s breakthrough series focusing on tobacco packages and household objects to the painting left on his easel at his death in 1964. Blurring distinctions between "high" and "low" art, between abstraction and figuration, and between text and imagery, these paintings reflect both the excitement and turbulence of the mid-20th century.
