Muy Buena 

Wednesday, Feb 20 2013
It’s that time of the month. That time when, after paying every bill, you realize you live in one of the most expensive cities in the country. Fortunately, there is still hope in this unaffordable city. Rain or shine in your personal economy, numerous museums today are free to all comers. On the list are the Cartoon Art Museum (Pay What You Wish Day), SFMOMA (catch “Paul Klee’s Circus”), The Contemporary Jewish Museum (view Kehinde Wiley’s hip men of color paintings), SF Camerawork, the de Young (the “Eye Level in Iraq” exhibit is a must-see), and don’t miss the Conservatory of Flowers nearby. If you can only visit one museum, however, go to Yerba Buena Center for the Arts. “Without Reality There Is No Utopia” is on display, examining how false narratives interposed by a virtual reality have replaced actual reality (Think about how much time you spend online). Then there’s Shih Chieh Huang’s “Synthetic Seduction,” a sculptural ecosystem that mirrors the machine performance movement of the Bay Area. As if this wasn’t enough, YBCA’s “We Carry Each Other” brings in queer, intimate, and unforgettable works of sculpture, movement, projection, and sound. Before ending your visit, stroll around Yerba Buena Gardens, enjoy the butterfly garden, try to shake the shaking man statue, or just stretch out on the grass, thankful that you have not spent a penny.
