Downtown San Francisco is home to a lot of great cultural institutions – it is part of the appeal of living here, right? Please join me in supporting the newest such facility (and a former Steuart Street neighbor) on June 8th when the Contemporary Jewish Museum opens its brand new doors just west of us in the Yerba Buena neighborhood.
The Museum is offering a Charter Member discount now until April 30th –
On Sunday, June 8, 2008, the Contemporary Jewish Museum will open the doors to its new Daniel Libeskind-designed facility in the heart of downtown San Francisco’s Yerba Buena cultural district on Mission Street between 3rd & 4th streets.
An adaptive reuse of the landmark 1907 Jessie Street Power Substation with an extension clad in vibrant blue steel panels, the design for the new 63,000-square-foot building preserves the character-defining features of the substation and introduces bold contemporary spaces.
With a broad range of offerings, including art, music, film, lectures, discussions, and new media presentations, as well as hands-on art-making workshops, the new Contemporary Jewish Museum will be a lively cultural center welcoming visitors of all ages and from all communities.
