July Arts Calendar from SF Art Enthusiast: http://sfartenthusiast.com/calendar/

Discover and Go: San Francisco Public Library is transitioning its beloved free museum and attractions passes program, known as Check Out San Francisco Family Pass, to a new online platform called Discover and Go. Library users will still be able to access free passes to more than a dozen San Francisco museums and attractions with the use of their library card. With Discover and Go, library users can better plan their visits to local attractions by reserving a pass online with their library card and printing their tickets at home or at the neighborhood library. In addition, while the Check Out San Francisco Family Pass was available only for families accompanied by children under 18, some  Discover and Go attraction passes are available for users of any age.

To start accessing passes to a variety of Bay Area attractions with your Library card, go to: discover.sfpl.org

San Francisco’s Discover and Go program is sponsored by the Department of Children Youth and Their Families (DCYF) and San Francisco Recreation & Parks.

'28 Chinese' at the Asian Art Museum


Edgy, transgressive, disturbing, challenging, interesting and in some cases, simply beautiful - if there's one show you must see in June, this should be the one.

'Promised Land: The Art of Jacob Lawrence' at the Cantor Arts Center


Thanks to the generosity of the late Dr. Herbert J. Kayden of New York City and his daughter Joelle Kayden, Stanford MBA ’81, of Washington, D.C., the Cantor Arts Center at Stanford University now holds one of the largest collections in any museum of the work of Jacob Lawrence (1917–2000), a leading voice in the artistic portrayal of the African American experience.

The gift is comprised of five paintings, 11 drawings, 39 prints and one illustrated book, all dating between 1943 and 1998 and all given in memory of Dr. Gabrielle H. Reem, who is Herbert Kayden’s wife and Joelle Kayden’s mother.
