Friday nights at the San Francisco deYoung Museum can be surreal. There is music, entertainment, cocktails, and art projects in the atrium, but the real gift is in the galleries. The current exhibit is Jean Paul Gaultier, fashion’s enfant terrible, “From the sidewalk to the catwalk“. You must pay to enter the galleries whereas the atrium activities are free. Last night I took my point and shoot camera into the exhibit and clicked away (no flash). I will go back multiple times the beauty of a museum membership.
The exhibit was one of the most interactive I have seen and the mannequins can steal the show. In part it reminded me of Disney Land, in a positive way. The lighting was low, the mannequins talked and there was video throughout. A treat for the senses. As I looked at the crowd everyone appeared to be in aw but maybe that was the cocktails. Take a peek at my pictures in the album below. My goal is to motivate you to see the show. Let me know how I have done and if you go to the show your thoughts.

It’s not my aim to be provocative. I just try to reflect what I see and feel around me.
