This Sunday I visited San Francisco’s Museum of Modern Art. Even my high hopes underestimated this museum. There were several astounding levels of diverse art. I was contemplating visiting SF MOMA today and I am grateful that I decided to take the trip to downtown SF. I captured some of my favorite artworks along with local street art and beautiful views of the surrounding area. I am also excited to have completed one of the tasks on my list of “22 Things I Want to Do Before I Turn 22” (Visit Contemporary Art Museums). Here are just a handful of my favorite pieces captured by my iPhone 8:

The photo capturing the two males sitting in two chairs, which is also this blog’s feature image, is by far my favorite photograph. The description is as follows:

DAWOUD BEY • American, born 1953 • Don Sledge and Moses Austin, from The Birmingham Project • 2012

On September 15, 1963, four African American girls were killed in the bombing of the Sixteenth Street Baptist Church in Birmingham Alabama, and two boys were killed in the subsequent violence. Bey created this work and others in The Birmingham Project to memorialize the lives lost in this tragedy. He photographed numerous city residents, some at the same age as the youths when their lives were cut short, and others at the age they would have been today. Bey then paired these portraits as diptychs based on their subjects’ physical traits and gestures, evoking the past through the present.
