de Young Museum
Be sure to visit the Amish Quilt Exhibit at the museum Large crowds on the weekends but worth heading to the textile galleries. Be sure to go into the study center. I love sitting at the computer terminal and looking at the collection. Also the drawers display precious smaller pieces. My lecture was well attended and the audience was enthusiastic about art quilts. Anyone can join the Textile Arts Council to support acquisitions and documentation of this important museum collection. The museum is joined with the Palace of the Legion Of Honor and together they are known as Fine Arts Museums of San Francisco. What a treasure we have in our area.
