It’s funny how we all have different tolerances for looking at inanimate objects. I can spend hours looking at 150 million year old rock formations in a national park, but 500 year old paintings don’t do much for me. I guess that means that I wouldn’t have the best time visiting the Fine Arts Museums of San Francisco, but maybe you would. The organization runs two separate museums: the de Young in Golden Gate Park and the Legion of Honor in Lincoln Park. Combined they make FAMSF “the largest public arts institution in the City of San Francisco and one of the largest art museums in the United States.”
While the Fine Arts Museums of San Francisco lists a nine-part mission statement on their About page, they also sum it up by saying that they aim “to provide its community and region with high quality exhibitions, programs, education and outreach, and to care for San Francisco’s esteemed art collection.” The best way to learn more about the organization is to visit the two museums, but if you can’t do that, at least check out the Legion of Honor and de Young websites. They both offer a ton of information on exhibits, programming, education, and more. If you like what you see, take a look at Fine Arts Museums of San Francisco’s Careers page. Right now they have a few great opportunities for new or recent grads including Member Services Assistant, Audio Visual Technology Coordinator, Weekend Receptionist, On Call Sales Associate, Public Service Trainee, and Admission Attendant.
