The photographer Dawoud Bey uses his camera to depict communities and histories that have largely remained underrepresented or even unseen. This full-scale retrospective highlights the artist’s commitment over the course of his four-decade career to portraying the Black subject and African-American history in a manner that is at once direct and poetic, and immediate and symbolic.
Step outside for a little fresh air and take in over 19,000 plants on our thirty-foot-tall Living Wall. As the largest living wall in the United States, it’s a beautiful backdrop for the sculptures nearby or a moment of reflection.
David Park’s boldly executed 1950s Bay Area Figurative canvases form the heart of this exhibition encompassing the arc of his career, from tightly controlled paintings from the 1930s to final works on paper from 1960.
Enjoy grab-and-go dining with socially distanced tables indoors, or seating in the museum’s Floor 5 sculpture garden. Cafe 5 features high-quality seasonal ingredients, along with coffee from iconic Italian roaster illy and wines by Meiomi and Kim Crawford.
