It’s a jam-packed month for fine arts aficionados! First up, the seventh annual Kronos Festival returns April 7 to 9 with performances by Kronos Quartet at SFJAZZ Center. And don’t forget to swing by Golden Gate Park to check out Ellen Reid SOUNDWALK, a free, GPS-enabled work of public art, which launched as part of 2021’s Kronos Festival. The breathtaking designs of China’s premier couturier, Guo Pei, have made their way to the Legion of Honor. Lovers of fashion can view more than 80 ensembles, paired with never-before-seen designs. Guo Pei: Couture Fantasy will be on display from April 16 to September 5. It’s still the first half of the year, but SFMOMA’s Art Bash is poised to be the best party of 2022. Kick off the night with cocktails, dinner and a live auction before getting lost in immersive art and live music, including a performance by The Linda Lindas. Festivities last into the night on April 8.
