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.
