Upcoming “Virtual Trips and Tours”

“Inside the Box” Virtual Day Trip
Sorry, this event has reached capacity.
Sunday, January 31 • 1:00-2:30 pm • $75 Members
“Inside the Box” takes us into the exhilarating world of games with New York Times crossword constructor David Kwong. You will have a front-row seat to an entirely interactive show of puzzles, while David regales us with stories of the most extraordinary puzzle-makers throughout history. Log on, put on your thinking caps, and join the fun!

Ticket holders will be emailed a PDF packet of materials one week in advance, which must be printed prior to showtime. David will guide the audience through these materials during the show.

This production will use the Zoom video conferencing platform. Audience members will “check-in” to their show up to 30 minutes ahead of curtain, and may be asked to interact with David as well as share their video at all times.

The show will begin once everyone is in the Zoom theater. Some puzzles will require volunteers, while others will involve the “Zoom grid” in which everyone gets a chance to participate. Along the way, David will unveil clues that ultimately reveal a special surprise at the climax of the show.

All sales final. No refunds. Exchanges subject to availability and restrictions. Some shows do not allow late entry or re-entry.

Registration required. Materials and Zoom link will be sent by the theater to registered attendees. Please contact Jane Skinner in our Adult Department with questions.


Art Talk: Revelations: Art from the African-American South
Thursday, January 21 • 2:00-3:00 pm
Do you have the ability to see and create art out of something completely ordinary? To find meaning in things that other people might overlook, even throw away? For centuries African American artists working in the Southern part of the United States had to “make do”, utilizing whatever materials they could find; but what emerged will make you reconsider what art can and should be.

With the addition of 65 objects, purchased from the Souls Run Deep Foundation, the Fine Arts Museums expands their collection of African American art created by until now largely unknown artists. Join us as we take a look at the ingenuity and creativity that can be borne of oppression and sacrifice.

Made possible, in part, by a generous grant from the Senior Excursion fund of the Jewish Federation of San Francisco, The Peninsula, Marin & Sonoma Counties.

Takes place via Zoom. Registration required.


Art Talk: Soul of a Nation: Art in the Age of Black Power
Tuesday, February 16 • 2:00-3:00 pm
Does art have the power to impact lives or change attitudes? Can a work of art stir our consciences? Mobilize us to action? And do artists have an obligation to use their work as a mechanism through which a political movement can be furthered? Those are just some of the questions that will be addressed in Soul of a Nation: Art in the Age of Black Power. The year 1963 might have marked the 100th anniversary of the Emancipation Proclamation, ending slavery in the South, but poverty, prejudice, racism, segregation and frustration were still rampant in this country. Explore how Black artists responded to these social and cultural conditions. “Soul of a Nation: Art in the Age of Black Power” was organized by the Tate Modern in London and exhibited to great critical acclaim at the de Young Museum in 2019-2020.

Made possible, in part, by a generous grant from the Senior Excursion fund of the Jewish Federation of San Francisco, The Peninsula, Marin & Sonoma Counties.

Takes place via Zoom. Registration required.


Art Talk: World of Jane Austen—Art, Fashion, and Eligible Gentlemen
Tuesday, March 16 • 2:00-3:00 pm
This entertaining presentation explores the world of beloved English author Jane Austen by looking at the art and culture of her time. We’ll discuss the roles of ladies and gentlemen, and how the industrial revolution was bringing “new money” into society. We’ll look at trends in fashion, country estates, garden design and proper tea service. Features artwork from the British collection at the Legion of Honor.

Made possible, in part, by a generous grant from the Senior Excursion fund of the Jewish Federation of San Francisco, The Peninsula, Marin & Sonoma Counties.
