Local Art Note

The "Picasso and American Art" exhibit at SFMOMA is worth seeing - lots of Picassos and various period American artists clearly heavily influenced by his work - includes one nice palladium photograph, actually.

Speaking of which, while you're there do check out the photography section - they have some good stuff and as they acknowledge, during the whole period they're focused on photography and the other arts definitely influenced each other in a very constant back-and-forth way. They have a good selection of prints from very early stuff onward using a variety of techniques. And anyway, if you've never seen an actual print from Ansel Adams or any of the Westons you're missing out - the real deal is much more impressive than that calendar you get every year...
