The Yerba Buena Gardens are painfully charming. The little oasis in the middle of downtown is home to museums, theaters, restaurants and cafes — there's a reason that everyone working within a 10-block radius eats lunch alongside the fountains. Yerba Buena Alliance has put together Yerba Buena Art Walk, sure to be the most delightful and pleasant art walk you can find. The day brings together San Francisco's top artists, curators, and art enthusiasts to enjoy live music, free admission to neighborhood galleries, and an after-party at Temple Nightclub. You don't have to be a snobby art professional to attend — the laid-back garden vibes make sure of that. You just have to be willing to spend a lovely day around beautiful things. Sounds nice, right? Participating galleries include: 111 Minna Gallery, Cartoon Art Museum, Contemporary Jewish Museum, Mexican Museum, Museum of the African Diaspora, SFMOMA, and, of course, Yerba Buena Center for the Arts.
