The Fashion World of Jean Paul Gaultier: From the Sidewalk to the Catwalk
March 24 – August 19, 2012
“Beauty exists everywhere”
– Jean Paul Gaultier
Calling all fashionistas! You won’t want to miss this dynamic exhibition devoted to celebrated French haute couture designer Jean Paul Gaultier, one of the most important designers of our era. It is without doubt one of the most creative and extraordinary exhibits we’ve ever seen. And what better place to see it than at the de Young museum in San Francisco – the exclusive west coast venue. As you enter the exhibit, you’ll see lifelike animated mannequins, draped in signature Gaultier designs, illuminated against a royal blue backdrop — it couldn’t be more visually stunning. Some of the mannequins’ facial features and movements are so lifelike and surreal, you’d swear they were human… we kid you not! Watch the video below and see for yourself.

The Magna Carta

Don’t miss seeing the Magna Carta (Great Charter of English Liberties) – one of the most important legal documents in the history of democracy – on display now for a limited time only at San Francisco’s Legion of Honor as part of BritWeek 2011. It’s the first public display on this continent in its nearly 800-year history (it was in the U.S. twice before, both times for private events only).
“Van Gogh, Gauguin, Cézanne and Beyond:
Post Impressionist Masterpieces from the Musée d’Orsay” September 25, 2010 – January 18, 2011
If you liked the previous exhibit (“Birth of Impressionism”), you’re gonna love this one even more… I know we did! The second of two exhibitions from the Musée d’Orsay’s permanent collection “Van Gogh, Gauguin, Cézanne and Beyond: Post Impressionist Masterpieces from the Musée d’Orsay” is on display at the de Young Museum in San Francisco (it runs thru’ January 18, 2011).
If you’re looking for something different to do on a Friday night, head over to the de Young Museum in Golden Gate Park. Mingle over cocktails and enjoy a fun evening of art, culture and entertainment – the entire museum is open until 8:45pm.
“Friday Nights at the de Young” features a mix of live music, poetry, films, dance, art-making demos, lectures, docent tours and interactive kids activities.
Don’t miss “Tutankhamun and the Golden Age of the Pharaohs” exhibit at the de Young Museum in Golden Gate Park, S.F. Weekends are expected to sell out, so get your tickets now. The exhibit runs through March 28, 2010.
Even if you attended the previous “King Tut” exhibit in 1979, there’s many more amazing objects to see this time around, including 50 pieces from the tomb of King Tut, plus an additional 80 objects from the tombs of his ancestors.
The exhibit is spectacular — be prepared for crowds!
