When In… San Francisco

C INSIDER: Sabrina Buell

“I love that San Francisco has become one of the most important cities in the world from a cultural and intellectual perspective, and yet it maintains the feeling of a small town,” says art advisor Sabrina Buell. The co-chair of SFMOMA’s new Contemporaries program (launching this month), Buell resides in Cow Hollow with her fiancé, industrial designer Yves Béhar, and their four children. Here, her favorite spots. Pacifica State Beach I love to surf here on weekday mornings. Fall is the best time of the year for waves. • Ratio 3 The most beautiful space in the city. No matter what’s on view, the installation is always spectacular. ratio3.org.SFMOMA I’m really looking forward to the Bruce Conner retrospective—he’s a hometown hero. sfmoma.org. Hero Shop Emily Holt’s new space has the best-curated clothes and objects. heroshopsf.com. The Presidio Filled with hiking trails such as Lovers’ Lane and Lands End, it’s also the site for Andy Goldsworthy’s land art. Alta Plaza Playground While your kids play you can enjoy the amazing 360-degree city views. Altman Siegel Gallery I find myself wanting to buy something from every show. I’m excited for the opening of the new space at Minnesota Street Project this fall. altmansiegel.com.
