Last Supper at the Exploratorium

 Sunset 8:06 PM. San Francisco, CA

Tonight was the last Awards Dinner of the Exploratorium at the Palace of Fine Arts, it’s home for the past 43 years. While major donors and former honorees dined out on the museum floor under the skylight, the staff celebrated in the McBean Theater at the other end of the museum. Tiny shades of Upstairs Downstairs- years ago the staff was invited and welcome  to join the guests. Alas the seats were much less expensive then, and after all, those were the old days. These days, however, everyone is looking forward to the upcoming move which is scheduled for 2013 to the new home right on the San Francisco Bay. Ahhhh.
