Tonight Henry Urbach, SFMOMA Helen Hilton Raiser Curator of Architecture and Design, will be giving a short talk on British artist Ewan Gibbs’s drawings of San Francisco, currently on view on the third floor landing. Ewan’s works are based on knitting patterns (slashes, circles, dots), and thus communications assistant/art-loving spinner of yarns/SFMOMA Facebook impresario Ian Padgham has organized an impromptu evening knit-in to go with.  Henry’s talk starts at 6:30 in the Atrium, and then heads upstairs. Knit-in anytime after 5pm in the Rooftop Garden.
