Our June episode goes back in time to SFMOMA's Countdown Celebration, the final days before the museum closed to begin our expansion project. While the museum was bustling with round-the-clock programming and events, we caught up with artists, makers, visitors, volunteers, and staff members to talk about the celebration and what they would miss during closure. First up, installation manager Brandon Larson sheds some light on what it takes to pack up an art collection. Next, artist Desirée Holman reflects on organizing the closing processional that led everyone out of the building one last time. SFMOMA will reopen in 2016.
Each SFMOMA Artcast brings you illuminating audio and video interviews with artists, curators, and visitors as they respond to the works on view and in the museum's collection.
This Artcast episode is part of our Goodbye Botta Story Board, a digital hub for texts, dialogue, multimedia, and a constellation of outside links offering windows onto the worlds of SFMOMA artists and artworks.
