KQED Member Days: Free Admission to The Contemporary Jewish Museum

Rube Goldberg

Saturday, April 21 – Sunday, April 22
San Francisco

Join KQED at The Contemporary Jewish Museum for KQED Member Days and view their newest exhibition The Art of Rube Goldberg. Rube Goldberg began his career drawing comics for the San Francisco Chronicle. Rube’s contraptions, which were nothing short of a cultural phenomenon in the 1930s, endured and delight audiences to this day. The exhibition brings together never-before-exhibited original drawings and preparatory sketches alongside rare photographs, films, letters, and memorabilia from the Goldberg family archives.

Admission is free on Saturday, April 21, and Sunday, April 22, to KQED members who present a valid ID and current KQED MemberCard. Tickets are available in person, day-of-visit only. Total of two persons per KQED MemberCard.

KQED Passport

KQED Passport is a new member benefit that gives eligible donors and supporters extended access to an on-demand library of quality public television programming online. The KQED Passport library currently offers members more than 1,000 episodes to watch, with new PBS and KQED programs being added weekly.

The library features episodes from popular programs like American Experience, American Masters, Antiques Roadshow, Nature, NOVA, and Masterpiece — including all five seasons of Downton Abbey. In addition to these signature series, the library is full of public television’s acclaimed arts, science, history, and lifestyle programs; including How We Got to Now, Earth a New Wild, Austin City Limits, and a rotating selection of films from Ken Burns — currently Jazz and Unforgivable Blackness: The Rise and Fall of Jack Johnson are available.
