The city’s cultural terroir is on view in two remarkable exhibitions at the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art. “How Wine Became Modern: Design + Wine 1976 to Now” (Nov. 20–Apr. 17), designed by Diller Scofidio & Renfro, showcases the visual and material culture of wine from 1976 until today. Sfmoma also previews the renowned Fisher Collection of contemporary art: 1,100 works assembled by Doris and the late Donald Fisher (founders of Gap).
Fashionistas and opera lovers alike will delight in the San Francisco Opera’s production of
Aida (Sept. 10–Dec. 5; sfopera.com), with vivid sets and costumes by designer Zandra Rhodes.
