SFMOMA

We got back from our trip to California a week ago and I'm finally getting caught up! I have tons of posts coming up but I wanted to start with some photos from our trip to SFMOMA. We saw a huge retrospective of Mexican Photography that was really interesting, I loved some of the more contemporary images. I didn't take any photos in that show so the following are faves that were fun to see in person.
This was a piece in entryway, the view as you were looking up.

This is the same piece but viewed from a mezzanine. There was actually a projection of two boxers on the hanging lights.

This last images reminded me that there was a documentary made about Kiefer called Over Your Cities Grass Will Grow. Here is the trailer, I'm hoping it makes it to Netflix soon!



Art Project

Thanks to Matt for telling me about Art Project from Google! While there is nothing like seeing art in person, this is a pretty great tool. Google partnered with many of the world's top museums (Tate Britain, MOMA, the Met, the Uffizi Gallery, Rijksmuseum, etc.) and uses streetview to simulate walking through their galleries. They also have high-res images from their collections that you can view up close (really, really close).
