Dithy Does MOMA

Every first Tuesday of the month, San Francisoc’s Museum of Modern Art is free to the general public.  Having never been to the SF MOMA, I figured today might as well be the day.  So, I got up early, braved the crazy throngs of tourists, set my ipod on my “chill mix” and wandered around.  The San Francisco MOMA is pretty small — I was able to meander around the entire place (minus the Georgia O’Keef and Richard Avedon exhibits) in under two hours, but it was a sweet place.  It really made me miss East Coast weekends spent wandering around the Philadelphia Art Museum and Boston’s Museum of Fine Arts for hours.   Next time: Richard Avedon exhibit. I’m psyched for that.

After the actual art collection being displayed, people watching is my favorite thing to do while at a museum.  I don’t really understand when people take pictures of paintings in museums.  But, it fascinates me that they do.  I, on the other hand, like taking pictures of people at art museums.  I know.  It’s pretty meta.
