O’KEEFFE’S EVOLUTION
“I know I cannot paint a flower. I can not paint the sun on the desert on a bright summer morning but maybe in terms of paint color I can convey to you my experience of the flower or the experience that makes the flower of significance to me at that particular time.” —Georgia O’Keeffe
Experience flowers, both painted and real, this weekend in Modern Nature: Georgia O’Keeffe and Lake George and Bouquets to Art 2014!

SAN FRANCISCO VIEWS
The Golden Gate Bridge is perhaps the most iconic structure that defines the city of San Francisco. But after seeing millions of postcard and magazine images featuring the famed suspension bridge, where do you go for that picture-perfect shot yourself? Our Concierge has put together five of the best locations in the Bay Area to snap a magnifique image of the icon herself.
Topping our list is the view from Fort Baker (1) on the Marin County side, one of the hidden coves that boasts a million dollar view of the Golden Gate Bridge. Equally as popular is Fort Point (2), which will give you a great view of the bridge as seen from below; Baker Beach (3), is a less well known site for a great up-close snap. Also a favorite is Hawk’s Hill (4), a former military lookout point perched atop one of the many mountain tops that overlook the serene Marin Headlands to the north and San Francisco Bay to the South. Finally, on the Marin County side you will find Battery Spencer (5), for that “postcard” shot of the Golden Gate Bridge known the world over. Go explore!
