July 25, 2016 Statement regarding recent press:

The Fine Arts Museums of San Francisco wishes to correct a statement made by a staffer concerning the future leadership of the Museums. That statement in turn led to the publication of an inaccurate article in the July 25, 2016 edition of the San Francisco Chronicle. Ms. Diane Wilsey remains the President and CEO of the Fine Arts Museums and continues to be greatly valued by the Board and its new director for her contributions and leadership.

Ceramic artist Malloy explores the concept "earth plus mud plus fire makes stone" with a hands-on interactive project. Museum visitors are invited to create surface finishes on "stone" objects to be used in an installation as an offering to our ancestors. Visitors will work with prepared bisque ware, wet clay, and slip-cast molds.
