David Hockney: A Bigger Exhibition marks the return to California of the best-known British artist of this generation with a comprehensive survey of his work including portraits, landscapes, oils, drawings, and watercolors. With more than 300 works, it is the largest show in the museum’s history. In the afternoon, an optional shuttle is offered to the Legion of Honor for Matisse from SFMOMA. On loan from the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art (SFMOMA), the exhibition features 23 paintings, drawings, and bronzes from the acclaimed artist Henri Matisse.

We do not share specific pick-up information on our web site, as we have found over the years that other travel groups tend to use our pick-up points without ours or the property owner's permission, which reflects poorly on our company and hurts our ability to offer convenient pick-up points to our clients. Accordingly, we ask that you not suggest our pick-up points to other groups you travel with, as "the more the merrier" does not often apply to parking lots. Your understanding is appreciated.
