When you live in San Francisco it is easy to carve a bit of time from a day and visit the historic San Francisco Art Institute. On a recent weekend day, my husband and I were walking around Russian Hill, so we stopped in to explore again this lovely Institute.
With origins dating back to 1871 and located at 800 Chestnut Street on Russian Hill since roughly 1925, the history of the buildings themselves is fascinating.
One of our first stops after enjoying this tranquil courtyard was to see the Diego Rivera mural, one of 3 in San Francisco.
No visit here would be complete without heading to the deck, part of an addition built in the 1960s where we enjoyed one of the best views in San Francisco. Take a look for yourself:
