Access Days provide an opportunity for visitors with specific needs to experience our special exhibitions when the museum is closed to the general public. Access Days feature extra blue zone parking spaces, extra seating inside and outside the exhibition, portable large-print editions of exhibition labels, docent-led tours, audio tours, and printed versions of the audio tour script. Wheelchairs, folding stools, ASL interpretation (upon request two weeks in advance), and materials in alternative formats are available upon request.
James Tissot: Fashion and Faith, co-organized by The Fine Arts Museums of San Francisco and the Musée d’Orsay, Paris, is the first major reassessment of the artist’s career in over twenty years. New scholarship demonstrates that even Tissot’s most ebullient society paintings reveal rich, complex commentary on nineteenth-century society, religion, fashion, and politics, rendering him worthy of reexamination today.
