sfmoma The lil green buddies are movin' in! Just baby plants at the moment, these natives are finding a home in the museum where they can grow into a living wall, drinking wastewater and needing very little maintenance, so that by next year, you'll get to enjoy some fresh greenery. #FutureSFMOMA #livingwall #verticalgarden 5d

sfmoma Did you know? One of the first works of art added to our permanent collection was ‪#DiegoRivera‬’s 1935 painting, "The Flower Carrier"—a gift from Albert M. Bender, who donated over 1,100 objects to the museum! Here’s an archival pic from when it was installed in our original building on Van Ness.Do you recall seeing it anywhere else recently? #TBT 6d

sfmoma Spotted in SFMOMA's offices: this cheeky guide to art criticism by way of emoji (S/O @paperhammerstore). Predictively avant-gardist anyone? 7d

sfmoma How’s this for a #TBT? When we started out as a wee museum on the fourth floor of the War Memorial Veterans Building on Van Ness. (Part of the San Francisco War Memorial and Performing Arts Center, also home to the San Francisco Opera and Herbst Theater!) We opened in 1935 and stayed on Van Ness until our move to Third Street in '95. Did you ever visit us at our old place? 2w

sfmoma Major + majorly heartening! Bravo to our friends in NY for adding The Rainbow Flag (created by Gilbert Baker in 1978) to their collection! We celebrate you with pride. #MuseumLove #LGBT #LGBTQ Regram: @themuseumofmodernart 2w

sfmoma A visitor looks at "Un Coq pour Chango (A Rooster for Shango)" [which was formerly titled "L'Oracle et l'oiseau vert (The Oracle and the Green Bird)"] currently on the go at MoAD for "Portraits and Other Likenesses from SFMOMA." In this 1947 painting, you can see how artist #WifredoLam mixed cubism and surrealism to define his style, which incorporated mythological elements and totemism (the belief that humans have a kinship with another spirit-being, such as an animal or plant). Looking at the imagery and thinking about the title(s), what do you think is going on in this painting?

sfmoma Photographer Dawoud Bey says that a portrait, such as this one, "is as much about the photographer as it is about the subject . . . I as the photographer recognize some aspect of myself in the person I am photographing." What do you think? How much of a portrait is about the subject and the photographer? And even the viewer?

sfmoma The design of the future SFMOMA is more than a collection of walls (though it is that, too). The new building will open a wide window to connecting modern and contemporary art where we'll have galleries of many sizes, heights, and even shifting walls—challenging curators and artists alike to "bring it on" as they say.
