Learn more about SFMOMA’s connections to the cultural fabric of San Francisco, both past and present, in this special roving event. Experience new public practice artist commissions,and view colorful and historic public works by collection artists at Rincon Annex and the Maritime Museum.
Begin the afternoon by dropping in for micro-talks at the former post office at Rincon. Explore the history of San Francisco through Anton Refregier's murals as local historian Chris Carlsson, geographer Gray Brechin, and other Bay Area figures tell their favorite stories of change in the city and reflect on the legacy of the New Deal.
When you are ready to move on from Rincon Annex, be sure to pick up a specially commissioned Can We Talk About Art? map by artist Amanda Eicher. Discover pop-up conversations about how art matters in our lives today as you meander through the city on your way to the Maritime Museum.
A new group of presentations at the Maritime Museum includes bestselling local author Gary Kamiya speaking on the hidden aspects of Aquatic Park and the waterfront’s cultural history.
