Our culture is full of discussions around managing the ever-important “first impression”—that first encounter with a new person, place, thing, or idea, when opinions are often hastily formed. It can be difficult to escape the grip of a “first.” However, artworks can provide artists, viewers, and collectors with multiple opportunities for first impressions—an expression particularly apt in printmaking, since every sheet bearing a printed image is called an impression.

Access Days provide the opportunity for visitors with special needs to experience our special exhibitions when the museum is closed to the general public. Access Days feature extra blue parking spaces, extra seating inside and outside the exhibition, portable large-print editions of exhibition labels, docent-led tours, audio tours (free for visitors with low-vision or that are blind), and printed versions of the audio tour script. Wheelchairs, folding stools, ASL interpretation (request two weeks in advance), and materials in alternative formats are available upon request. 

Crash Courses in Art History

Crash Courses in Art History is a series of classes that teach curious lifelong learners how to look at, engage with, and discuss art using the de Young's and Legion of Honor's permanent collections. Taught by museum curators and educators, visiting scholars, and artists, each course enables participants to understand the trajectory of artistic developments as they relate to historical events. In addition to lectures and discussions, classes make ample use of the museum galleries, creating a truly unique educational experience. Each course is four weeks long.
