SFMOMA closes down until 2016 with the museum party to end all parties!

SFMOMA was wild today - more people than I have ever seen and all imbued with a festival spirit. Normally I avoid crowds because I suffer from a bit of claustrophobia, not helped by being short. But I went down for the end of this chapter in SFMOMA's 75, 76 (?) year history. I can't wait for the opening in 2016. Bravo to the staff at SFMOMA! A week long celebration, numerous events, a ceremonial ground breaking event and they didn't put a foot wrong.

Next up is the opening of a show at the Contemporary Jewish Museum, focusing on the theme of spirituality. I will enjoy that one because I understand that the curators will be pulling works out of storage that haven't been seen in ages. Plus, the galleries at the CJM are smaller and more intimate.
