San Francisco: Contemporary Jewish Museum; things to do


San Francisco 

"Beat Memories:  The Photographs of Allen Ginsberg" just opened at the Contemporary Jewish Museum for a run through September 8.  Ginsberg wrote poetic captions that appear in his handwriting under the photos.  The exhibit is enhanced by a room where you can hear a recording of Ginsberg reading from several of his poems.  Among the special programs related to the show is a mini music festival focusing on interpretations of Bob Dylan's "Highway 61" (Ginsberg had a sort of father-son relationship with Dylan).

More about the Contemporary Jewish Museum, including the deli restaurant (scroll down).
