Open Space Thursdays

Koret Visitor Education Center

SFMOMA'S blog, Open Space, is a lively forum for critical and personal writings about art, visual culture, and issues specific to the Bay Area. In the same spirit, former contributors — artists, writers, performers — host real-time discussions on several Thursdays this fall. More information: blog.sfmoma.org/openspaceonsite.

Free with museum admission.
