Wayne Thiebaud: “Artist’s Choice” & “Paintings and Drawings”


Wayne Thiebaud at the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art


Stationed at Mather AFB in 1942, Thiebaud became familiar with SFMOMA and this special show offers a first-hand look at his creative process from beginning sketches to finished paintings. Like a double scoop ice cream cone from one of his paintings, the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art presents an exhibit of pieces selected by Wayne Thiebaud. The exhibit includes his own drawings and paintings along with personally selected works of other SFMOMA artists. With many of the pieces rarely seen and no curatorial idea in mind, “I just picked things I’ve loved to look at;” Thiebaud includes works by Henri Matisse, Joan Miro, Pablo Picasso, Richard Diebenkorn, and Georgia O’Keefe. His own exhibit of “Paintings and Drawings” from SFMOMA’s collection, spans 50 years of his career from 1962 to 2012. A docent tour is included for the exhibit. Lunch is on your own in one of the Museum cafes.

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