I had a 12 hour layover recently in San Francisco, on my way to New Zealand. I decided that I would go into town and visit the MOMA museum. It has always been one of my favorite places to go in San Francisco and it was amazing. I was so inspired.
I thought I would share with you all some of my favorites over the next two posts (breaking it up due to the number of photos). Let’s just start with the architecture of the actual museum. I love the atrium of the museum.
The art, especially the Fisher Collection works are amazing. I saw great pieces I knew from Ellsworth Kelly, Donald Judd, Josef Albers and Frank Stella but also was introduced to some new artists like Gerhard Ritcher and Sol LeWitt. Here’s part one:
Gerhard Richter (256 Fabern) Gerhard Richter (Fenster)
Chuck Close (Phyllis)
Carl Andre (Western Red Cedar) Frank Stella (Charlotte Tokayer) Frank Stella (Zambezi) Donald Judd (untitled) Donald Judd (To Susan Buckwalter)
The Typeface Interface exhibit was amazing!! Unfortunately everything was encased in glass which gave off a reflection in all the photos.
Tomorrow, I will post some more of my favorites including the Ellsworth Kelly pieces. Ah-Ma-Zing could not believe these pieces could be even better in person!!
