Man Ray Photogram 1922

If you need motivation to get out of the Mission this weekend, the show “Man Ray and Lee Miller: Partners in Surrealism” at the Legion of Honor is open through Sunday. According to the Legion, these masters of the surrealist style began their work together as teacher and student and later became lovers. The show features 115 photographs, paintings, drawings and manuscripts that explore the creative interaction between the two artists.

Over in the East Bay, the Berkeley Art Museum is exhibiting a retrospective of Mission-based artist Barry McGee. Rising to acclaim with other Mission School artists in the ’90s, McGee first came into the public eye as a graffiti artist by painting various characters and writing his tag, “Twist,” all around San Francisco. BAM will host the retrospective through Dec. 9.
