Scenes from San Francisco Museum of Modern Art!

All this week, I plan to share with you some of my vacay photos! I took a lot. I have way too many too share in just one post. So I thought I would break it up!

Tasha and I went to the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art. I have always wanted to go to their store, in particular. I’ve read a lot about it and they always were featured in mags for having the coolest things. I finally got my chance and I totally spent $150. Some of it was for gifts for the holidays, but most of it was for me. YAY! For those of you who can’t make it to the museum store, they have an online store you can visit.

We also saw some cool exhibits, lots of Warhols and Lichtenstein’s as well as some cool photography and installations. We were enamored by their colorful 75th anniversary logo and backdrop…the rainbow circular wall. Here’s just a few moments from our time there.

Now onto the photos!

We were enamoured by these beads. A little too much that I even directed a video. I’m a dork!

Until next time Swellions!

I heart postcards!

i love postcards

These are postcards from a set from the Museum of Modern Art and I just love them. I love modern art much more than ancient art. It’s so much more colorful, kitschy, and expressive. I quickly laid these postcards out and now I realize I picked the most risque of the bunch to showcase in the front. Eh, I think I’ll leave it. Anyway, I have never been to go to MOMA (I did go to the MET once), but one of these days, I want to take a day trip to the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, since it is only 3 or so hours away from me! Part of the reasons I want to go to them is for the fab gift shops. I’m pretty certain this is where this postcard set was purchased for me (I’m pretty sure by my friend Steve 🙂 Anyway, I’d love to do a creative project with them one of these days and put them on display. It’s so sad they sit in a bin most days, not getting to be enjoyed? Do you have any cool ideas for them?

Until next time Swellions!
