Members at the Contributor level and above are invited to start the weekend right with art, mindfulness and coffee in one of San Francisco’s most beautiful locations.
Indulge in Impressionist masterpieces before the crowds descend. Enjoy a tour with our expert docents and learn how high-fashion millinery fascinated and influenced Degas, Renoir and others. Featuring over 40 paintings, pastels, and exquisite examples of hats from the period, the exhibition opens a vivid window into turn of the century Paris.
Soak in your surroundings with mindfulness instructor Dorian Besancon. Dorian will be leading sessions in the Court of Honor, guiding your focus to the present moment. Inhale the scent of the Pacific and Monterey pines while The Thinker ponders overhead.
