Comments about Smart Destinations YBCA Yerba Buena Center for the Arts:

Was somewhat in the area after visiting the Asian Art Museum (a must see), so I dropped in here. There was an Asian artist iinstallation on display -- Song Dong. The videos & photos felt personal. If this is an example of what YBCA offers than I reccommend it whole heartedly.
