The Country Dog Gentlemen Travel to Extraordinary Worlds

Come romp with our two canine celebrities in SFMOMA's interactive feature The Country Dog Gentlemen Travel to Extraordinary Worlds. Our ever-expressive guide dogs will lead you on a magical journey of artworks in SFMOMA's collection. Then it's your turn to create art in the styles you just explored. Expect much tail wagging at the results!

Detail Detective

Get out your magnifier. It's time to investigate art the modern way by playing Detail Detective, an interactive visual literacy game. Your job as Super Sleuth is to uncover the hidden clues in famous artworks from SFMOMA's painting and sculpture collection. You'll find yourself amazed at the intricate detail and covert layers that normally escape the untrained eye. (Is that you, Watson?) Leave no stone unturned. The game is afoot!
