The de Young will be open on Labor Day even though it’s normally closed on Mondays. The Picasso exhibit will be closing soon. If you don't care for Picasso, there are two superb exhibits to catch - kilms (rugs) from Turkey and an exhibit of works on paper/

SFMOMA is also open today and even if you can't get in to see "The Steins Collect," there's plenty of art on view on the other floors. Local artists Andrew Schoultz does an artistic riff in response to Klee.The design wing of the museum features the work of Dieter Rams, whose design philosophy of "less is more" has been enormously influential

For more than 40 years, Rams was the lead designer for the German household appliance company Braun. He has also been the active designer for German furniture company Vitsœ since his start there in 1959. This exhibition includes more than 200 models and objects by Rams and his team, as well as contemporary designs influenced by his Ten Principles of Good Design, such as Apple computers.
