Free Day at the Asian Art Museum
As part of its 50 year anniversary celebrations, the San Francisco Asian Art Museum is hosting Emperor's Treasures, a special exhibit all summer consisting of loans from the National Palace Museum in Taipei, Taiwan.
Today was Free Day at the museum which takes place on the first Sunday of every month, and the entrance line this morning stretched all the way around the block.
It looked as if the entire Taiwanese diaspora living in the Bay Area showed up, and since the queue was inching along at a snail's pace, I decided to wait to be taken to the museum later this summer by my friend James Parr, who can explain it all to me.
