Name:De Young Museum
Type:other
Street:50 Hagiwara Tea Garden Drive
City:San Francisco
State:CA
Zip:
country:USA
Phone:415.750.3600
Status:operational

Description:
For a better overall description than I could write about the De Young follow this link...

http://www.famsf.org/deyoung/

Now they have an amazing Oceana Collection that has been discussed a bit in varying posts, but here are some of the shots me and my daughter snapped on a visit there. I did not have the time to get descriptions, so you'll have to go there yourself, or sleuth it out with fellow tc'ers via these images. But enjoy the eye candy, and I will be posting more as time permits.

These are clickable thumbnails so don't fret, you can see big versions with just one click. I also did some close up cropping on that fabled Trader Vic's Tiki...

Enjoy.

We are, Scott, but we certainly would do so MUCH more if all these images would not be in the thumbnail size they are now. It was discussed here before, I think this happens when they are not hosted by TC, but by a photo site like flicker.

It is amazing that they have so many cool pieces, I never see the DeYoung mentioned anywhere. If the new LACMA acquisition was 5 Million bucks worth, this collection must be worth many times more. You have a treasure there, San Franciscans.

They are clickable for larger versions. I figured rather than bog computers with the full size, I'd give you the viewing audience, the option of choosing which ones you would like to see full size.

I can put them up full size, what say the masses? Thumbs or full size?

Aaah, of course, we had that before, and I forgot about it. Sorry, that fully suffices for my needs, thanks Scott.

Speaking of acquisitions...







You can always go to the gift shop and get some Oceana looking shields and masks for a very agreeable price! I think between $150 and about $275 or so... maybe more on some...

Apparently one of the Covarrubias "Pageant of the Pacific" murals (flora and fauna) was installed there recently and it seems there are a couple of related events tomorrow night:

Friday 1st August

6:00-8:30 p.m.
Art-making for the Entire Family. Create an animal amulet necklace inspired by the Covarrubias mural in the Art of the Americas gallery.

Koret Auditorium
7:00 p.m.
Lecture: - Diego Rivera, Covarrubias, and the San Francisco Murals Tradition, by William Maynez, a mural historian at City College of San Francisco.

Thanks for the pics!

My work had those murals in storage and I was very fortunate to see the panels up close and personal.

And no prob for the pics, if you couldn't tell I enjoy taking them!

It's OK, I got to see them in situ



Thank you again for your great post, Scott, I will definitely seek out the De Young when in S.F. next....I must find that early 50s depiction of the Maori Tiki that Vic used.

And how exciting to hear that one of the Covarrubias maps will be on display again.
Please San Franciscans, keep us posted about that here! I wish I could go to that mural lecture today, that sounds great! Kind of ironic that a member from the other side of the world had to tell us about it...

TG! Dang, if only I'd known you were going to be there! The deYoung is a short stumble from my place, and I've been meaning to get back there to take more/better pictures, it would have been a blast to do it with you. Dang, dang, dang!

Thanks also for the heads-up on the Covarrubias thing tonight, Paipo -- I probably can't make it, but I'll keep an eye out for the mural the next time I'm there.

oh yeah, thanks for the photos! A ton of PNG masterpieces. I wish I could get to SF. You guys on the west coast are so lucky in so many ways.

I actually saw the announcement about the mural on Dinosaurs and Robots and was already going to post it here when I saw that this thread had conveniently been freshly created.
Looking at the DeYoung site it seems there is a regular series of Friday night lectures and events, including bands and a cocktail bar, but unfortunately the Covarrubias lectures have all been and gone now.

Also, I posted this link in the thread about the TV logo tiki, but it's probably worth mentioning the other DeYoung connection with Trader Vic in this one too. That Marquesan crown would be worth a visit on its own....
