A group of California College of Arts MBA in Design Strategy students met at the museum for a social outing and activity. They were asked to take three pictures of things that moved them, and as you can see, some took that literally by reenacting Eadweard Muybridge‘s Jumping over boy’s back (leap frog) on the third-floor landing. A new spin on Jumping in Art Museums?

Thanks to Laura Ramos for snapping this great pic and to Jessica Watson for posting it on Flickr!

Thanks to Leonard Davich for catching this shot of a visitor adding one more blue color block to Ellsworth Kelly’s Red Yellow Blue White and Black with White Border (1952–53) from the Fisher Collection.

Carter Young took this photograph of two people chillin’ in Harrell Fletcher and Miranda July’s Learning to Love You More installation. The work includes 70 assignments completed by strangers and sent in to the artists, selected by SFMOMA Media Arts Curator Rudolf Frieling and artist Stephanie Syjuco. It’s nice to see quiet moment...

Daniel G. Marchand caught Robert Arneson’s No Pain (1991) spying on a museum visitor.

“We were visiting the museum and having a coffee in the [rooftop garden] when I noticed this woman reading her newspaper, being watched by the “head”. I just had to get to ground level and capture the moment.”

Thanks Daniel!

If this sculpture, Hail to Reason (2004) by Rachel Harrison, could be said to have a face, then I believe these two are standing nose to nose. Ugo52, aka Hugo Molina, happened upon this scene and documented it for us:

“I was visiting the museum with a friend that day when I saw this person by that sculpture without moving or doing anything but standing in the position for a long time, so I said to myself that has to [be] a powerful piece of art and I just took the picture.”

You can see this work by Rachel Harrison in the 5th-floor g... More

Matthew Felix Sun took this photograph of museum visitors adding their own colors to Ellsworth Kelly’s Blue Green Black Red, 1996. “This picture was a chance photo of mine,” he writes. “I don’t know the people who posed for this wonderful tableau—”

You may remember a Flickr pic of the week post from last May of Sol Lewitt’s Steel Sculpture. Here’s another take on the same work that I couldn’t pass up. Christie Landrie took 365 pictures of herself in 2010, and we were lucky that she took #273 at SFMOMA.

Thanks, Christie!

Penelope Umbrico’s 5,377,183 Suns from Flickr (Partial) 4/28/09 is on view through January 16. This installation comprises 1,440 prints of photos of the sun taken by Flickr users, and the title of the work refers to the number of results returned for the Flickr search “sunsets” the day the artist produced the work. You can read more about the work at the artist’s website. I thought it would be fitting to make our own collection of pictures from Flickr of people in front of Suns from Flickr.

A big THANK YOU to t... More

It came as no surprise to me that Acey Thompson, who snapped this shot, and model Marcus Gannuscio are both artists. I love the black hoodie and yellow shirt next to this blue and white Ellsworth Kelly. Acey fills us in on their trip to the museum:

Thanks to Ken Osborn, aka Misterken, for taking this great photo of visitors interacting with George Segal’s Chance Meeting. Ken explains it further:

“I went to SFMOMA with friends to see the Fisher Collection (Calder to Warhol). While it was truly an impressive collection, I was most fascinated by New Topographics: Photographs of a Man-Altered Landscape. Perhaps that’s my bias as a ‘photographer.’

“While looking at the art on the rooftop garden, I waited for a group in front of this sculpture so I could ta... More

Thank you, Ken Yee (aka yuweiquan), for capturing this!

Plus, Ken has quite the story behind his trip to SFMOMA that day:

I wanted to check out and attempt photographing something I had observed on a rooftop garden visit from a couple of weeks earlier. I was sitting to the left of the Ellsworth Kelly (with the Louise Bourgeois behind), admiring jus... More

The Flickr universe just got a little smaller.  Back in August I posted a Flickr Pic of the Week by Chris Gruhl, a.k.a Shadowgolem.  I loved Chris’s image and associated text because he took an artwork he didn’t particularly appreciate and he used his creativity to make it more to his liking:

Maurice, the pug, steals the show in this pic by Sergio.

“I’m actually trying to get photos of him in front of different landmarks around SF, like the SFMOMA building. He was in a playful mood that day and started tugging on his leash to get my attention, so I thought that would make a great shot.”

Thanks Sergio and Maurice!

Chris Gruhl aka Shadowgolem says about the mono-colored painting, “A big solid gray canvas? Really?…Art needs to have more than just intention, it needs execution” and instead of just thinking it, he created his own work of art using Felix Gonzalez-Torres’s poster available in the 2nd floor galleries. He says, “this composition was our attempt to add a bit to it. Still very abstract but not quite so, well, boring.”

Thanks Chris!

There’s something about Charles LeDray’s Come Together that begs you to put on the tiny shirt. In Christine’s words:

“As we made it through the museum Nathan and I had fun with some of the incredible art (more photos on my flickr!). This particular picture was his idea, wanting to make it look like he was wearing the tiny shirt and a fun challenge to get the right angle and distance to accomplish his idea.”

Thanks Christine!

SFMOMA visitors have the best taste.  Just take a look at the color and variety of their umbrellas!  Thanks to Scott DuBose who caught the very well accessorized unattended umbrella rack on a rainy day.
