D.E.A.F. Media, Inc. and the Fine Arts Museums of San Francisco are pleased to announce...
A D.E.A.F. MEDIA Docent Tour: "ART DECO 1910-1939" with RON TRUMBLE
Glamorous, exotic, and vibrant, Art Deco is widely considered the most popular style of the 20th century. San Francisco will be one of only two American venues for Art Deco: 1910-1939, the extraordinary exhibition organized by the Victoria & Albert Museum, London. Art Deco looks at the sources of inspiration and the global impact of this phenomenally popular style of the early 20th century, a style that was synonymous with glamour, sophistication, and luxury.
The tour will include voice interpretation by Patty Lessard and Ric Owen.
WHEN: Sunday, June 13, 9 a.m.*
(* The early hour allows us in before the museum is officially open to the public. This helps us to see the exhibit better--with less crowds.)
