      Welcome to the West Coast, Mr. Turner!

      Now on view through May 24, 2015.

      Somehow it’s already the last weekend of Painting Set Free! Galleries will be open till 9 PM this weekend for you to absorb all the Turner-ness.

      Next stop for Turner? San Francisco at the deyoungmuseum where it’ll open June 20!
