SFMOMA — Aaron Marcus
When SFMOMA, the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, now the largest museum of its kind in the U.S., reopens on May 14th after three years of renovations, one of the exhibits, Typeface to Interface, will be anchored by a major gift from graphic designer and collector Aaron Marcus, my lifelong friend and the boy with whom I had my first date. In addition to 28 pieces from his personal collection, 21 of his own works of graphic design, computer art, and visible language art will be part of the exhibit. (May 14th – October 23rd)
I never miss a visit to MOMA when I visit New York. Sounds like SFMOMA will now be on my “must see” list whenever I visit San Francisco!
If you visit the museum, I would love to know what you think! From the news reports and photos, it sounds like the building, itself, will be worth seeing!
