San Francisco's Best Art



Description:

San Francisco is a city where creativity soars, from world-class art museums to abundant galleries to vibrant public art. Museum lovers can rejoice in the city’s myriad offerings, from global indigenous art at the de Young Museum, modern masters at the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, edgy contemporary creations at Yerba Buena Center for the Arts, or unusual exhibits at the California Palace of the Legion of Honor. Special mentions go to the grand permanent collection of ancient to modern artifacts at the Asian Art Museum, unique takes on history at the Contemporary Jewish Museum, and funky Americana at the Crafts Museum. Love browsing galleries? Check out hip 111 Minna Street Gallery, featuring the works of local artists, happy hour DJ’s, and killer cocktails. Alternatively, head to quaint Sausalito, home to tons of local artists. Exploring the Mission District—in particular Balmy Alley, Precita Eyes, and the Women’s Building—reveals an explosion of murals and public art.
