I finally got to see Bob Arneson’s legendary and controversial bust of Mayor George Moscone. We also got to “operate” the radio in Rafael Lozano-Hemmer’s installation Frequency and Volume. The kid who felt the need to dance along made it even better. Art doesn’t need to be taken so seriously. The next time I probably see the lobby, it will be quite different after the renovations. Currently it is filled with Wenda Gu’s installation.
As always at the SFMOMA, sometimes the museum visitors are more of a show than the art itself. For example, these folks (seen below) taking in the Logan Collection. The outfit to match Tracey Emin’s Pysco Slut was a particular favorite.
If you want one last look at the current (and rather new “old”) SFMOMA, you have until June 2nd. Then it closes for three years.
