Here’s a cultural feast for $0. Walk freely into any gallery in the Bay Area. The most professional works fortunately are all within strolling distance in downtown SF and SOMA. 49 Geary has five floors of them including great photography at Fraenkel. Round the corner at 228 Grant Berggruen has been showing top international artists for years as has Crown Pt. Press on Hawthorne Lane.
And why pay even senior admissions to Bay Area art museums? Here’s when you can see what’s showing for nothing.
