The Fine Arts Museums of San Francisco are the city’s museums. As part of our initiative to welcome all San Francisco residents to the museums free on Saturdays, we provide free unique museum experiences celebrating the city we love.
Join us to celebrate San Francisco Pride month kicking off June 2019! San Francisco is world renowned for our Pride Celebration and parade. It is the largest gathering of the LGBTQ community and allies in the nation. We celebrate the commemoration of LGBTQ heritage and highlight our city’s impact on LGBTQ history, culture, and liberation. Today, writer, abolitionist, and fourth generation Black San Franciscan on both sides, Tanea Lunsford Lynx presents a poetry reading series in our permanent collection galleries.
Join us for Free Saturdays during June while we host some of San Francisco’s finest!
1–1:30 pm and 2–2:30 pm
Gallery 16 and Wilsey Court
