THE VENUE
SAN FRANCISCO'S MOST HISTORICAL
& ICONIC LANDMARK VENUE

San Francisco's Palace of Fine Arts is the only surviving building in the Marina District from the 1915 Panama-Pacific International Exposition celebrating the opening of the Panama Canal and San Francisco's recovery from the 1906 Earthquake and Fire.  Widely considered the most beautiful structure at the exhibition, the Palace of Fine Arts is the work of California architect Bernard Maybeck. Inspired by a Piranesi engraving that features a Roman ruin reflected in a pool, Maybeck’s masterpiece was the mirror of a ruin that existed not for its own sake but to show “the mortality of grandeur and the vanity of human wishes.” Like other features of the fair, the Palace was meant to come down at the close of the fair; however, the citizens of San Francisco felt it was just too beautiful to destroy.  Now over 100 years later, The Palace of Fine Arts remains one of the most admired and photographed sites in all of San Francisco.
