San Francisco MOMA – modern art text

“Send me Aggression” – “The Girl with the Knife in Her Hand”; Yoshitomo Nara

This is one of the coolest things I have come across in awhile… The Museum of Modern Art in San Francisco now offers a chance to see many of the hidden gems from their collection through text message. Just send a request to the number 572-51, with the words “send me” followed by just about anything (Nouns, colors, emotions, etc.) and they will send you back a picture of one of their pieces related to that word. There are more details and information in this article that I read on an art blog called “Hyperallergic”.

San Francisco Museum of Modern Art – Text Service

Of course, I had to try it for myself :

Text message to 572-51; “send me water”…

Richard N. Kauffman, “Columbine Lake, Evening”, ca. 1956

“Send me bicycles”…

Unknown, “Untitled [Men with bicycles]”, 1920’s

Of course, there is not a match for every word you may come up with, but try a few and see what they come up with. Then a miniature version of each work is yours to keep forever.

I LOVE spending time with my wife and three kids. We work to play. We love the outdoors and being able to travel. Some of our favorite trips have been to Chicago, Boston, Italy, Germany, and the Netherlands.
