Virtual Tours @Legion of Honor: Works in Three Dimensions
Thursday, November 12, 1:30-2:30 PM PST
The Fine Arts Museums of San Francisco is continuing their series of highly descriptive Zoom tours led by docent Jim Kohn. Jim is extraordinarily articulate and has significant experience describing art for the blind and low vision community.
Jim reports that we will be reviewing some notable and very interesting pieces of ceramics and sculpture from the permanent collection at the Legion of Honor Museum. We’ll encounter ceramics from Ancient Greece and Rome, then move on to famous marble sculptures from the Renaissance and 18th century, and conclude with several bronze sculptures by Auguste Rodin, whose work is at the heart of the Legion collection, including “The Thinker,” “The Kiss,” and “The Burghers of Calais. There will be time for your questions and comments following the tour. For Zoom access info, RSVP to Adult Program Manager Serena Olsen at email@example.com or 415-694-7316.
The LightHouse is pleased to present an update via Zoom on the Better Market Street project, which has undergone some changes as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic. Join us at 4:00 pm Pacific on Thursday, November 12, to learn about the changes from representatives of San Francisco Public Works and the SFMTA.
Notable developments include:
Removal of the sidewalk level bikeway
All transit vehicles will use the Muni-only center lanes and there won’t be any curbside stops
People biking will share the curb lane with taxis, paratransit, and commercial vehicles.
These changes mean that the sidewalks will only be for people walking and transit passengers no longer have to cross the bikeway to get to the sidewalk. Transit passengers will get to and from the center boarding islands at signalized crossings.
Each of these issues will be discussed in further detail. We hope you can join us. RSVP to Scott Blanks: SBlanks@lighthouse-sf.org.
