What’s Gorgeous to you?
Gorgeous presents 72 uniquely stunning artworks drawn from the collections of the Asian Art Museum and the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art. Spanning over 2,200 years and dozens of cultures, these artworks are organized in an attempt to shift the focus from historical and cultural contexts, emphasizing instead the unique ways each work announces itself or solicits a viewer’s attention. Some artworks may be beautiful to you; others, bizarre and challenging. Some may be all three. Whatever they are, your reactions to the show will be unique. (quoted from Asian museum website).

To everyone I met today, I'm so sorry I couldn't join you for lunch afterward as I was looking forward to discussing the exhibit and getting to know you. Unfortunately, I woke up this morning with a slight headache that only strengthened at the museum because I forgot my glasses. I look forward to the next event!

I arrived a bit late just as the doors were opening, and the line was moving. By then I guess the group was already inside. I enjoyed two docent tours--an overview of Gorgeous (spent most of my time in that exhibit which was fabulous) and Great Works which highlighted some of the most prized pieces in the Museum's collection; the docent was superb).
