    Awesome. I love the deYoung. Saw Dale Chihuly's exhibit there last year- outstanding.

    we are really fortunate to have the museums in SF get the quality exhibitions that they do.

    I have seen Chagall, Monet, Picasso, Rembrandt, Edward Hopper, Dali,Warhol, as well as Tut, and some incredible sculpture exhibits over the years.

    to the haters...tough Sh!t some of us like fine art as well as we like Narlus and his awesome punk collection, must be tough having a narrow mind.

    I would love to see Warhol. Chihuly's exhibit managed to work its way through this cultural wasteland about 3 years ago, that was cool as sh*t. I would NOT take my toddler to that exhibit. :eek:
