SJMA Reads, the Museum’s book club, returns. The spring selection is Yuyin Li’s Gold Boy, Emerald Girl, a collection of nine mesmerizing stories set in 21st-century Beijing.
Each week-long camp at the Museum is packed with fun and creativity. Children ages 6–14 learn to look at, talk about, and create art. Inspired by the summer exhibitions Annie Leibovitz: Pilgrimage and Questions from the Sky: New Work by Hung Liu, this year’s camp will explore new approaches to photography and technology in art.
$5 (free to members)
Celebrate with Hung Liu, one of the most beloved artists in the Bay Area, at this special evening. Enjoy the rare opportunity to see the artist at work as she paints the final wall of her new installation Questions from the Sky in a special performance at 7 PM. Festivities will also include live music and a DIY Art activity inspired by Liu’s work.
SJMA’s DIY Art program takes a daytrip across the park to The Tech Museum of Innovation (201 South Market Street). Qiu Zhijie, whose work is on view at SJMA in Rising Dragon: Contemporary Chinese Photography, draws with light in his photographs. Try your hand at light drawing with the Glow Doodle app.
