The Magna Carta
May 7 – June 5, 2011
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).
“Japanesque: The Japanese Print in the Era of Impressionism” October 16, 2010 – January 9, 2011
“Japanesque: The Japanese Print in the Era of Impressionism” exhibit introduces audiences to the development of the Japanese print over two centuries (1700–1900) and reveals its profound influence on Western art during the era of Impressionism. The term “Japanesque” was first used in English in the mid 1880s to refer to the Japanese style or manner.

“Life is not measured by the number of breaths we take, but by the moments that take our breath away.”
After previewing this amazing Cartier exhibit of priceless jewels, there were many moments that took our breath away. If you like fine jewelry… and who doesn’t, you won’t want to miss the “Cartier and America” exhibit – exclusively at the Legion of Honor in San Francisco – now – April 18, 2010. Even if you’re not into jewelry, this exhibit goes way beyond fine jewelry – these are pieces of magnificent works of art and history.
This is one exhibit that you won’t want to miss! Mark your calendar and book up before it sells out. “Annie Liebovitz: A Photographer’s Life 1990-2005” runs March 1 – May 25, 2008 at the Legion of Honor in Lincoln Park, San Francisco.
The exhibit features 200 award-winning photos — the pregnant Demi Moore, Nelson Mandela in Soweto, George W. Bush in the White House, Sarajevo, the American West, Jordan, and personal family photos, including those documenting the birth of her three daughters.
