Docent Lecture: "Danny Lyon: Message to the Future", by Kathryn Zupsic

Danny Lyon, "Tesca, Cartagena, Colombia," 1966
December 3, 2016 -
2:30pm3:30pm

Danny Lyon may appear to be a photojournalist, but he is not. While photojournalists strive to be objective, Lyon becomes immersed in the lives of his subjects, from 60s civil rights protestors, to motorcycle gang members and Texas prison inmates. He lives their lifestyles, becoming one of them. The exhibition is organized by the Fine Arts Museums of San Francisco in collaboration with the Whitney Museum in New York and the full support of the artist.

Docent Lecture: "Frank Stella: A Retrospective", by Jim Kohn

Frank Stella, Lac Laronge III, 1969

Frank Stella burst onto the art scene in 1959 at age 23, with his series of black paintings. Over the years his abstract compositions became increasingly complex and dynamic, moving out from the walls into the third dimension, expanding the very definition of painting. The de Young is the only West Coast venue for this retrospective covering six decades of Stella’s work, including paintings, wall mounted reliefs, and sculptures.
