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 firstname.lastname@example.org or 415-694-7316.
