I crossed #3 off my 30 Before 30 list: Go to an art museum that I have not yet visited.
I've been to a lot of art museums, more than most Americans I'm sure, but I had not been to the de Young in San Francisco so I headed off with three friends to check it out.
I also took about a million photos of myself in these shiny ball-thingys by some artist whose name I didn't catch.
(This post is feeling a little irreverent, my being an Art Historian and all and museums being, like, MY CHURCH.)
I liked the de Young. I didn't love the de Young because they mix fine art with more crafty type pieces in a way that doesn't exactly float my boat. But there were some nice pieces, the Warhol exhibition was slightly tacky (Warhol would have so approved), and the coffee in the cafe was good.
The view from the top wasn't too shabby either.
