3/23/2018 Field Trip to the Palace of Fine Arts
On March 23rd we will have another field trip, this time to the Palace of Fine Arts located at 3601 Lyon Street in the Marina District off highway 101 near the Golden Gate Bridge. Outdoor photos are possible at every angle. Its beauty stands out against the sky and is reflected in the nearby pond. The Palace of Fine Arts was built for the 1915 Panama Pacific International Exposition, a world fair to honor the completion of the Panama Canal that followed the devastation of the 1906 earthquake and fire. It was rebuilt in 1965, and renovation of the lagoon, walkways, and a seismic retrofit were completed in early 2009. The site features a classical Roman rotunda with curved colonnades in an idyllic park setting. In addition, the immaculate landscape is breathtaking with a variety of plant and animal life on the grounds with gorgeous swans gracing us with their presence.
Lets meet at 9 am, take photos then around 11 am walk over to the Starbucks located at 1 Letterman Drive in the Presidio (the Letterman Digital and New Media Arts Center, headquarters of Lucasfilm).
