What we're about

Group name changed from "Art History Museum Lover Group. "

We love art. We love going to museums. We art in museums. Art, to us, is a VERB.

However, without tremendous amount of research and background knowledge, a lot of us get lost in museums and don't know how to appreciate the displayed objects. We organize tours to museums and put together itineraries around themes, artists, and cultural events. We also organize occasional artsy movie nights, social events, and meetups at art fairs and festivals. This year we we invite our members to use their imagination to the fullest. Lets create interactive experiences where each member can capture and create images during our meetups using (among others) the instagram app and smartphone device tools.

Join us on meetups as we explore a more immersive experience with the art that is all around us. Let's redefine the museum experience in an instagramable way!

Monet: The Late Years

de Young Museum

So, what about his early years? It always bugs me when I see titles like this. (another example close by would be: Early Rubens) For the general audience, it's hard to make sense of all the revolutionary changes Monet made in his late years, if we don't know works from his early years and mid-years. BUT, that's where our tours come in. Our enlightening tour will lead you make sense of Monet, his tumultuous color, his wild brushstrokes, and above all, his late years. For this time, please order your tickets online early at https://deyoung.famsf.org/exhibitions/late-monet at the door admission could be more expensive. See you soon!
