Feast your eyes on this delicious still-life by Raphaelle Peale. Fun fact: when it was exhibited in 1817, only one person at a time could view it, to create a sense of intimacy between the viewer and the painting. #deyoungmuseum #RaphaellePeale ['Blackberries' | Raphaelle Peale | ca. 1813]

Picture your life in portrait mode 🤳 The use of portraits and selfies as status symbols is not a new concept — in early Colonial America, one in 100 colonists owned a portrait, which represented prosperity, cultivation, and class status.

🕺💃 >🕴Viewing art doesn't have to be a still experience. Let loose, get in there, and have fun with it! Just ask the artists: "Every person looking at a sculpture should use their own body. You can’t look at a sculpture if you are going to stand stiff as a ramrod and stare at it. With sculpture you must walk around it, bend toward it, touch it, and walk away from it." —Barbara Hepworth #deyoungmuseum #barbarahepworth ['Pierced Monolith with Colour' | Barbara Hepworth | 1965]

The embodiment of the male gaze and gender power imbalance. That, among other issues related to gender and power, are what Viola Frey's larger-than-life, colorfully glazed clay sculptures represent. An artist to look up to, Bay Area artist Viola Frey *reshaped* and defined ceramics as a fine art medium. #deyoungmuseum #ViolaFrey ['Man Observing Series II' | Viola Frey | 1984 📷: @apieceofpai]

💭 "So many of us express ourselves through clothes. This print makes me think about how clothing can be art too. With the human body taken out of the equation, it makes me realize how much our clothing is part of our identity.” - Sasha S., Teen Advisory Board member. The Teen Advisory Board is a group of teens who work with the us to make art accessible for their peers. You can see Sasha's favorite piece in Gallery 17. 👚👕 ['You' from the series Dance of Life | Harry Bowers | 1978] #deyoungmuseum
