Attending a Lecture
The Forum sponsors lectures on a variety of topics by prominent scholars. The lectures are usually presented at the Legion of Honor in Lincoln Park at 6:30 pm on the third Monday or Tuesday of the month or as double features during regular museum hours on weekends. All lectures held at the Legion of Honor or De Young are free to ADAF members and $20 to non-members.
Each Forum lecture counts as one hour of educational credit for the American Society of Appraisers (ASA), the American Society of Interior Decorators (ASID) and the International Society of Appraisers (ISA).
Forum members are also invited to attend receptions each year for the guest speakers. Most receptions are held at members’ homes throughout the Bay Area. The Forum also arranges special walkthroughs of museum exhibitions, intensive study groups, social events, and day and weekend trips to private collections in Northern California and beyond.
