Yuan Yuan Tan in Mufti

31 Aug

Coming out of the Asian Art Museum this afternoon following a docent briefing on the forthcoming calligraphy exhibit, I walked over to the shelter at the corner of Larkin and McAllister to wait for the northbound #19 Polk.  There in the shelter was a full-length image of Yuan Yuan Tan dressed in white shirt, narrow blue trousers and pale blue toe shoes, her right leg nearly at the six o’clock position encircled by her  right arm,  smiling nonchalantly in garments manufactured by THE GAP.  Being so close to the San Francisco Ballet headquarters, the ad made sense, doubly so with the cheek by jowl location to the Asian Art Museum, and an intriguing reinforcement to the forthcoming exhibit.  [More about that later.]

Looking at THE GAP Website, Tan appears at the bottom of  its main page,  recumbent this time if  repeating  her sense of ease.

It leads one to wonder whether THE GAP plans to utilize other San Francisco Ballet dancers.  It could do far worse.
