The deYoung Museum (in Golden Gate Park) and the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art (downtown) provide not only art within their walls, but architecture and design that invite you to visual delights looking at, out, and up. Here are two images from each museum.

Here are four of the compositions that have arisen from these moments; click open for slideshow.
