Sunday, November 7, 2010, rainy and chilly - a perfect day to spend in the warmth of a museum.
Thankfully, it was a free day - sponsored by one of the major credit cards, I cannot remember which one, but I salute them for sponsoring free days to museums.
And because it was a free day, it was crowded. Many kids were there and adults without kids were there too. Also at the same time there was a PIXAR exhibit going on - which was also free, except that they have limited tickets to give away per day. The tickets ran out by the time we got there. Still the museum had too much to offer the visitor, either a first-timer or a return visitor.
According to the website: Museum specializes in the natural science, history and art of the Golden State. Contains current exhibitions, permanent galleries and projects.
All about the Golden State. I have a few sampling of the pieces of art we enjoyed.
Hard to choose faves in a museum full of wonderful art, but these two are mine.
I didn't get the name of the artist but this landscape of what the bay area used to look like captured my lens.
What I found really interesting was the room for Day of Dead exhibit. I don't know if this is a permanent exhibit or just for the month. But I enjoyed this part of the museum a lot.
I may have a part 2 for this post as I took a lot of photos.
