What we're about
Formally the Bay Area Museum Meetup Group, the new title reflects the organizers’ experience the past few years for a middle-age and above group with meetups limited in size to 5-8 members discussing the art while sharing a simple meal, either brown-bagging it or in a restaurant. Each person has their own way to view art, slow, fast, recirculate, meander, talk or silence… However, to really meet people, it’s important to be in a relaxed setting on equal footing or seating if you will.
This is a group for those who have an interest in art and willing discuss it. However, it is not dry analysis but your own take on it. Could be insightful or maybe way off base but at least we respect each other's opinion. The Bay Area is rich in the number of museums and galleries exhibiting a wide variety art periods, artists, and mediums. Please join us if this is what you've been looking for. It will take engaging people to make this group a success.
To be a member you must answer a few profile questions to gauge your interest in art and socializing. If you're not willing to answer the questions then this group is not for you. You must provide a profile photo. A smiling selfie photo is a good start. We need to able recognize you in a crowd.
There will be a meetup fee of $5 or more to help fund the yearly subscription fee and misc. expenses of the organizers. Please think of it as investing in your meetup group.
The meetup host will have some "rules" to manage the group through the art event and social gathering. Those who rather pick and choose what to do in a group should not sign-up for meetups because the "rules" are what holds the group together. We welcome all types of middle-age people and viewpoints to share in the uplifting experience of fine art.
