Saturday was another cloudy day in the Outer Richmond District so we decided to venture off to the other side of town to get some sun! Greg and I set the alarm and made it out early in the day to check out SFMOMA (San Francisco Museum of Modern Art for all the noobs out there!) Greg and I LOVE going to the Getty down in Los Angeles, so we were very excited to check out some museums up here in SF. SFMOMA is in the SoMa area of San Francisco, which has so far been one of my favorite places to explore. It is right across from the Yerba Buena Gardens, which is where we planned to eat our packed lunch.

The museum was fun and packed with people. We saw a lot of kool art styles that we had never experienced before. Very Modern! One of our favorites was comprised of three separate pieces painted with thousands of dots. Unfortunately, we had a noob moment and forgot to take a pic of the artists information plaque! DUH! The Garden roof top was awesome too. There are a lot of big pieces up there along with a little cafe where they serve coffee (and I’m guessing tea).
I feel horrible saying this, but the truth is…either the pieces were amazing and beautiful in SFMOMA or they were something I feel I could totally do myself. Before all the art peeps start raging on us…Greg and I are not art experts and just enjoy walking through art museums quickly. We are not the kind to sit and ponder over a piece and wonder what was going through the artists mind…it is merely just an art fashion show for us. It’s nice and interesting until the next artist crosses our path (no attachments).
All in all, it was something fun and interesting to do on a Saturday afternoon away from home.
