What brings you to SFMOMA today?

[Eva smiles]

Eva’s mom: Our SFMOMA trip was all about Eva. She played on the geometrical cushions in the Koret Center, then toddled over to the arts and crafts room to see all the time-themed dioramas, then with cautious excitement she crossed the see-through bridge on the top floor. And even though she is just 15 months, she has on all trips to the museum enjoyed the paintings and installations. Today, she particularly loved Murakami’s Supernova.

  • We need to do a trip to the Chicago Museum of Art and see the Rothko exhibit. Eva, when you are ready, nod my way so I can make the plane reservations.
