Imagine a selection of crowdsourced games designed by SFMOMA's community, for SFMOMA's community. Last summer the museum put out an open call for inventive but simple and low-cost game ideas. Visitors can view the results in the Koret Visitor Education Center, and pick up instructions for prototype games to be played in the museum's galleries and other public spaces.

You are invited to participate in this experiment. Do you have an idea for a fun and engaging new activity in SFMOMA's galleries? Add your voice to the dialogue by visiting the exhibition's game design station. Watch SFMOMA's social media channels for gaming-related activities at the museum. Come play!
