There are no rules in art, it is often and accurately said, but when it comes to paintings and sculptures, and which medium you're more likely to see displayed outside, well... The latter choice will be the one most people choose, for sculptures can be far more alfresco in nature than canvas and paint.
That's all changed at the Legion of Honor in San Francisco, where several massive paintings by the legendary Julian Schnabel are now on display under sky and sun. The artworks, which measure 24 by 24 feet, will remain in the destination's open-air courtyard through Sunday, Aug. 5, 2018.
Love sculptures? The artist has created those, too, for the show, which was curated by director Max Hollein of the Fine Art Museums of San Francisco. "Julian Schnabel: Symbols of Actual Life" is the artist's "...first exhibition in a West Coast institution in over 30 years," so count on art lovers traveling from all over to see it.
How will rain, fog, and sunshine change the paintings over the coming months? Visit now, in the artworks' earliest days on display, then plan another stop-by in the first part of August, all to eye the transformation of these striking pieces in person.
