Art Deco Exhibit Coming to San Francisco

Art Deco at the Legion of HonorAs someone who has always been terribly fascinated by the Art Deco movement of the early art of the 20th century, I'm very excited to report that the Legion of Honor fine arts museum of San Francisco is showcasing a landmark exhibition.

Evidently, this is the first exhibition to explore Art Deco as a global phenomenon and its influences across San Francisco, New York, Bombay and Shanghai. A description from the Legion of web site claim "the style transformed the look of everything, from art, architecture, and auto design to fashion, Hollywood films and travel."

Over 300 sculptures, paintings, examples of architecture, glass, metal, jewelry, graphic art, industrial design, film and photography will be on display.

I've always appreciated Art Deco for its clean, modern, sexy-sleek style. Shapes were very often overly gemoetric and the colors employed many golden hues.

It's a treat that San Francisco will be showcasing this event and I hope you have a chance to check it out. Tickets are available now.

Personally, I'd like to see art deco experience a renaissance in the early part of this century. There's an assocation bound to arto deco design and the future that projects an optimism about the future. :)
