Masters of Venice: Educational Resources

Dear Educator:

This exhibition, featuring works that were once part of the collection of the Habsburg family, offers you and your students a unique opportunity study works from the Renaissance. Highlighting artists such as Titian, Giorgione, Tintoretto and Veronese, the exhibition traces the Renaissance, High Renaissance and Venetian Mannerism through these artist’s paintings—many never before seen in San Francisco.

House of Mirror Reflections

Wednesdays–Sundays, 1:00–5:00 p.m.

Dana Zed invites visitors to see themselves and each other differently, all in a mirror maze of magic glass and changing light. Zed will be drawing museumgoers and encouraging them to draw themselves and each other.  The portraits will be printed and hung on the wall, to be taken home after the closing reception. Come see for yourself: Learn to draw and paint digitally.  Draw or be drawn.
