Living the San Francisco Dream

Living in San Francisco: the San Francisco Art Institute

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.

Entrance, San Francisco Art 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.

Courtyard, SF Art Institute

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:

Mary, I'm glad you liked learning about the SF Art Institute. The list of artists who have been associated with it is amazing, including Ansel Adams, a favorite photographer of almost every hiker!

Darcy and Tony, San Francisco is full of treasures, but this is one of the great ones. The San Francisco Art Institute rents out space for weddings, meetings, etc. Wouldn't that be fun?
