Recently I have received invitations to exhibitions in museums, and one of which, despite my having lived over 20 years in San Francisco, I have never known its existence!
Here is a little tour:
Tian Tian is a comic character created by international artist Danny Yung originally from Hong Kong. In Chinese, the phrase “Tian Tian Xiang Shang”means working hard daily to achieve your goals. His Blank Boy Canvas collection is a cross cultural collaboration to create an individual approach of art on a blank canvas and was exhibited in the nostalgic Chinese Historical Society of America Museum in the San Francisco Chinatown (this was my new discovery) and many other metropolitan cities.
Another favourite San Francisco museum of mine is the Asian Art Museum located near the City Hall. Recently it has been exhibiting the beautiful lacquerware of historical Korea, a country that uses beautiful sea shells for many of their artworks.
The recently expanded San Francisco Museum of Modern Art is another flagship museum here showcasing many American artists’ works; with their highly interactive self-guided tour, you can hear and see the artwork coming alive.
