KQED Member Day at the Legion of Honor museum
Sargent and Spain

Free Admission on March 24, 9:30am-5:15pm

The Fine Arts Museums of San Francisco are proud to present Sargent and Spain, the first exhibition to explore the influence of Spanish culture on the dynamic visual practice of the American expatriate artist John Singer Sargent (1856–1925). His fascination with Spain, which developed over the course of seven visits taken from 1879 to 1912, resulted in a remarkable body of work. The exhibition will present an array of Sargent's dazzling oils, watercolors, drawings, and never-before-exhibited photographs from his personal collection, which explore Spain's rich culture (both historic and modern), its people, and its magnificent urban and rural landscapes.

Admission is free on Friday, March 24, 2023 from 9:30am-5:15pm to KQED members plus one guest who present a current KQED MemberCard on-site at the Legion of Honor museum tickets desk.
