Houghton Hall: Portrait of an English Country House October 18, 2014 – January 18, 2015 Legion of Honor —The Fine Arts Museums of San Francisco present Houghton Hall: Portrait of an English Country House, an exhibition drawn from the collections of a quintessential English country house. Built in Norfolk in the 1720s for England’s first prime minister, Sir Robert Walpole, Houghton Hall features suites of grand rooms conceived by architect William Kent as settings for Walpole’s old master paintings, furniture, tapestries and Roman antiquities. “Houghton Hall brings to San Francisco a wonderful array of objects from one of Britain’s great country houses, and reflects the history of this magnificent estate across nearly 300 years, from the 18th century to the present day. It is particularly fitting that this exhibition is being displayed at the Legion of Honor, complementing our recently reinstalled collection of British paintings and decorative arts,” said Colin B. Bailey, director of the Fine Arts Museums of San Francisco. Click here to see photos by Jeff Kan Lee of this fabulous exhibit.

A service dog is the key to independence for many disabled people. Beyond opening doors and flicking light switches, dogs offer companionship and emotional support. Since the service dog concept was founded by Bonita Bergin in 1975, the use of service dogs has spread around the United States and the world. After visiting Cuba in 2011, Bergin University of Canine Studies master student Davis Hawn, (at left) was inspired to bring service dogs to the people of Cuba. With the help of Beatriz de la Osa, (right) a Bergin student from Cuba, the creation of the first Cuban Assistance Dog training facility is underway. It will be called The Booster Center, in honor of Hawn’s yellow Labrador retriever, Booster (with the eye glasses).

Aurelio Hurtado’s life has been a long march for farmworker’s rights and for those that are underrepresented and consequently disadvantaged. He marched alongside Cesar Chavez and Dolores Huerta and campaigned for Bobby Kennedy. He joined the Native Americans and African-Americans in a quest for justice and helped found the California Human Development Corporation (CHD), a beacon of hope for the poorest of the poor; the immigrant artists of this beautiful landscape we call the North Bay. After 45 years of working for farmworker’s rights through CHD, Aurelio Hurtado retired this past June, leaving a legacy of service that empowers and inspires. We sat down with him to get a glimpse of the man behind the legend.
