This is a continuation of my out-of-print guidebook--WEEKEND ADVENTURES IN SAN FRANCISCO & NORTHERN CALIFORNIA. It features travel destinations throughout Northern California and presents them in small, easy-to-digest chunks. Even more great weekend adventures await you at my BERKELEY AND BEYOND website at www.berkeleyandbeyond.com.

San Jose: San Jose Institute of Contemporary Art
San Jose Institute of Contemporary Art560 S. First St., downtown, (408) 283-8155. Tu-F 10-5, Sat 12-5. Free. This
small venue displays emerging and mid-career artists who are underappreciated
and endeavors to make contemporary art accessible and exciting to all. Exhibitions are presented in three
galleries. My current favorite—a platoon of gurgling water coolers--is part
of “The Office”; the series of feathers
composed of staples is also quite interesting.
Workshops and special events are scheduled.
