Work with other Bay Area educators to learn how key middle school math concepts align with the de Young’s collections. The program will include specific lesson plans and strategies for touring the galleries as self-guided groups. Lessons were developed by classroom math teachers in collaboration with museum staff and University of San Francisco math faculty as part of the Fusion Project. The program is designed for teachers of grades 6–8. Note date change from February 4 & 11.
Visit James Turrell's Three Gems in the Osher Sculpture Garden during its optimal viewing time—at sunset! Open 5–8:45 pm.
In 2014, artist James Turrell (b. 1943) contacted the Museums to review Three Gems, a site-specific “skyspace” located in a grass-covered hill in the Osher Sculpture Garden. The work was approaching its tenth anniversary at the de Young, having been installed during the opening of the new building in 2005.
