Yerba Buena Center asks 'What's the Big Idea?' 

San Francisco’s Yerba Buena Center for the Arts invites the public to explore one "big idea" that’s guiding the season’s programming. On Saturday, folks may experience contemporary art in a festive, welcoming atmosphere — and for free — from 11:30 a.m. to 8 p.m. at an open-house series called "What’s the Big Idea?"

The theme is "making peace"; the offerings include a Bang on a Can marathon music festival and the center’s current visual arts exhibition, "The Missing Peace: Artists Consider the Dalai Lama." Later in the evening, Bang on a Can — a rock band and a chamber group — appears at an 8 p.m. ticketed concert; seats are $30 to $45.

Part performance and part utopian vision, Bang on a Can events bring together innovative and experimental musicians from across the globe. Bay Area artists are expected to figure into Saturday’s picture. YBCA is at 701 Mission St. Call (415) 978-2787 or visit for details.
