Another Yerba Buena family Day has come & gone. It was Sun Oct 16, 2011 & the SFMOMA was one of 4 museums open for FREE - Thank you Target! Floor 5 - same old stuff, then some new stuff Dec 9th. Floor 4 - Richard Serra Drawing: A Retrospective now thru 1/16/12, No pics allowed. Glad there's no description of his stuff to read, just look & go wtf? I don't get it. Lots of squares, circles, black. Moltened lead in a room, wtf? I like his other artwork better. Sharon Lockhart: Lunch Break now thru 1/16/12. A video of some lunchroom in super slow motion. Auuggh. Floor 3 - Picturing Modernity - cool photos. Face of Our Time - more cool photos. Floor 2 - Less & More: The Design Ethos of Dieter Rams - some ...
I am the worst museum goer that exists on this green Earth. After my coworker begged me the whole day to go with him to the first free Tuesday of the month at MOMA, I finally accepted. I love museums, but sometimes I feel like I can draw a happy face or a blue line, but it just doesn't cut it. When we got there, the gentlemen in the entrance said to my coworker who is a male to either carry his backpack or carry it on the front. He looked like a pregnant man. I was wearing heels and was making so much noise, clack clack clack...and I was loud, saying cool, oh my, WOW..look at that..taking the elevator, taking silly pics, speaking in different languages, just having fun. There is about 5 floors, very modern, ...
My review is probably colored (haha) by the fact that I had a corporate membership and did get to see the Stein collection for free. (Thus the 4 star review) That being said, we would have been more than willing to pay to see the special Stein collection exhibit. The Stein family had an extensive collection of Matisse and Picasso and we were surprised to find that there were a lot of paintings from Picasso's blue period. The depth and the breadth of the collection would rival a museum in Europe. The use of colors are stunning and there was something very intimate and personal knowing how close these great artists were to the Stein family and you can really see the personal side in the artwork that was on dis...
It's been ages since I've been to the SF MOMA. We end up finding the exhibits at the De Young and Asian Art Museum more interesting. I was drawn back to the SF MOMA for The Steins Collect exhibition. Really interesting collection (what an endeavor it must have been to reunite all...
The SFMOMA is a great space with a collection that doesn't quite meet the hype or the cost. Seriously, the tickets are $18 for adult, $25/$27 for the special Stein exhibit (which we'll get to, and was awesome). Consider that the MOMA in New York is $20, and has a far more historic collection, and that price tag is steep. But first, a digression on the Stein exhibit, which was curated phenomenally with a vast array of art from the late 19th to mid 20th century. The exhibition narrated the life and times of the Stein family, intermingled with their art, their artists, and the evolution of the times. It's timed entry, but even that didn't prevent the place from being absolutely packed.So while the story was inc...
