Reviews for Yerba Buena Center for the Arts

1 month ago

Totally cool and futuristic building that has a wonderful complex and art and games. A large grassy area to watch kids jump around and see locals sun on the rare not foggy and warm days.

A mecca of multicultural expression. – In Short
Although its exhibitions are often unjustly overshadowed by those at the adjacent SFMOMA, CFA remains a risk-taking, integral part of the city's art scene. From local dance company Joe Goode Performance Group to the Chinese Opera Troupe and the physically challenged Axis Dance Company, the center strikes a democratizing note by showcasing a rich panoply of Bay Area, national and international artists inside its 755-seat theater.

the place for local, contemporary art – Although SFMOMA houses modern art, I find it's exhibitions in general (with a few exceptions) stale. I usually leave in a bad mood with curses on my lips. In opposition (in viewpoint and location), you have YBCA. Not only does it house a gallery with current and local artists, but it shows films, sponsors theater and dance (see Lines Ballet), and almost anything else. YBCA gives the art world (that is still living) a voice. You may not like everything you see, but better yet it hasn't been filtered for your viewing pleasure. It's real.

Beautiful Space – Amidst all the criticism San Francisco has gotten in recent years for the demise of its arts community, the construction of this beautiful arts center has been a huge addition to the city's cultural landscape. Not only does the center showcase quality experimental and traditional arts, but it is also a wonderful architectural landmark, despite its proximity to the aesthetically challenged Metreon complex.
