SFMOMA’s FREE 75th Anniversary Activities

The Bay's best newsletter for underground events & news

I was going to try and make this post terribly witty, and entertain you with some funny anecdote about that time I did something really embarrassing in a museum, but then I got sucked into the vortex that is Pot Psychology. I swear my attention span is that of a cocker spaniel on acid when I’m exposed to the damn interwebs. I often wonder what sort of amazing and productive things I could do with my life if I could just get away from a computer machine for more than two hours. But alas, since internet is the new TV, I may never know.

So my friends, from one overstimulated internet addict to another, I hope you understand my copying and pasting of the following deets for what sounds like a sweet and FREE way to spend the rainy weekend.

SFMOMA’s anniversary year kicks off with three FREE days of special programs. Throughout the weekend, enjoy:

75 gallery talks led by members of the Bay Area creative community
* Installations by artists Bill Fontana and Allison Smith
* The debut of our new multimedia tour
* Saturday evening performances with headliner Matmos
* A Sunday family day with activities and film screenings
* Special menus from Caffè Museo and Blue Bottle Coffee and delicious snacks from some of the city’s finest street food carts, parked outside the building on Minna Street
* Your tweets and Flickr photos projected on our walls (tag them sfmoma75)
* An inspired collection of new products at the MuseumStore
* The Backstory and Overlook Lounges, where you can relax, have a bite to eat, and get a peek at how exhibitions are installed

Once she was old enough to blow that pop stand she escaped to the place that was the anti-SLC: The Peoples Gay-public of Drugifornia aka San Francisco (holla 30 Rock!). You can now find her throughout this glorious city slurping Pho and scheming with her best friend Pinky doing what they do every night; try and take over the world.
