SFMOMA you gotta go-a!!Posted: July 19, 2016
Every floor, every turn and every space of SFMOMA was filled with an exciting, joyful and remarkable work of art! While in San Francisco for three nights, we did everything else but go to SFMOMA, but the next week while in Berkeley I decided to zip back over on the BART and I’m so thankful.
Then you get to see striking contemporary art and take photos!! Many of the SFMOMA works reminded me of student work completed this past year. Like this one, I remember the student feeling so strongly about using just blue!
And reflect upon how great elementary students respond to contemporary art. In the spring, Students viewed Diebenkorn’s work and we talked about collecting colors in our community. This work reminded me of the 100 color challenge for 100th day of school. Students used cute & clever names for their tints and shades!
Be reminded of their independence to explore themes of their work in a variety of mediums like animals, shoes and nature.
Recognize students development of aesthetic. I loved getting an email from a student over the holiday sharing his favorite collection of cards displayed in a new formation.
Ability to transform and showcase natural materials. These girls have constructed a xylophone out of twigs & sticks~adding music to our hike for an art & science class!
I just could not get enough of this place.
And spaces you want to walk along forever
I love you SFMOMA!!
A few more lovelies………………
