FINAL WEEKS Closes September 14


Oh, how time flies.  It seems like just yesterday we were voguing at the Grit & Glamour Gorgeous opening party with people decked out in fabulous outfits. And now, suddenly, we’re approaching the final weeks of Gorgeous. Sigh.

Don’t miss your chance to experience 72 unique artworks from the collections of the Asian Art Museum and SFMOMA. San Francisco Chronicle’s Kenneth Baker said the exhibition left him “…amused, amazed and confused in about equal measure – no easy feat.” SF Weekly called it "one of the year's most provocative exhibits."

What exactly is this show about? For a taste, check out this short clip in which people share their definition of "gorgeous."  Click here for the entire playlist of related videos. Wanna sweeten the deal? See Gorgeous for just $5 on Thursdays after 5 pm. Sometimes we have special programs on these nights. Better yet, you can see it for FREE this Sunday at Korea Day.
