San Francisco - new museum

Jump to last reply

Yesterday went to a very interesting museum. IAMA = International Art Museum of America, opened a year ago, but they don’t have budget for advertising, so I haven’t heard about it till recently. They have Asian and European paintings, and the whole collection looks strange, like scrambled at the last moment, but still enjoyable. Some paintings are difficult to see with the glare from windows and light bulbs.

Museum is free the first year, but they don’t know how long the free admission will last, so hurry if you want to see it without paying. Familiar names are Toussaint and Carpentier. Asian paintings are “all over” – at least one from 17th century, but mostly from an artist with the last name “Buddha III” who uses different styles.

On the first floor they have landscaped wooden “houses” and a waterfall, very pleasant to the eye. You cannot miss the writing on the wall: Samaranch is the honorary director. Second floor has paintings and toward the end you walk into “Japanese village” with 3-D art. Don’t miss the dragons on the way to the restroom. We spent over an hour there, and would love to come back some time later.
