The most recent time I was here was in March, when visiting family in the greater SF area. The Bali exhibit was fantastic. Before that, they had a beautiful Japanese screen show. A year ago, the Shanghai exhibit was one of my favorites of all time. Add to these temporary shows their commitment to the permanent collection, and I find this to be one of the crown jewels not only of San Francisco, but for museums throughout the world for people interested in Asia. They do not shortchange Southeast Asia, for example, in exchange for Northeast Asia. The museum shop is extraordinary. If you like it as much as I do (I'm a Bostonian), I highly recommend getting the out-of-region membership. I thank the City of San Francisco for supporting such a wonderful, unusual place, particularly during these challenging financial times. I'm already getting ready for the show on India in the Fall.
