During the past few weeks, I’ve been observing some rather unusual museums in San Francisco. Many of which are awestruck fantastic. Here they are and I recommend checking them out if you still can:
1. THE ANDY WARHOL EXHIBITION
Oh dear, where to start? The Andy Warhol Exhibit was amazing. Shown at the de Young Musuem, the exhibition has lasted for almost 2 months. I couldn’t take any pictures at the exhibit so this picture at the SF MOMA will suffice. It was great to see his glorious works on everything centered on Mick Jagger, his 50 record cover designs, history with music, The Silver Factory and his superstars, his love for divas like Debbie Harry and Judy Garland, his self-portraits, and even the 20 Brillo Soap Pads laying all over the floor. He’s one of the creative minds of the 20th century and it was a real treat to witness this exhibition.
2. 30 YEARS OF THE SISTERS OF PERPETUAL INDULGENCE
The Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence showcased their historic 30th anniversary with dresses, videos, and galore. Some of the wackiest paintings and maybe some of the most breathtaking, It’s a free gallery at the Yerba Buena Center for the Arts as it is great to see the famous radical genderfuck artists of San Francisco. My fellow colleague is writing a story about the anniversary , and I all have to say is they are excellent “camera whores!”
3. THE WATCHMEN EXHIBIT
It was a perfect time to showcase the art and the basically the world of the Watchmen. With the theatrical film adaptation out, the Museum had large prints of the comic panels, life-size costumes, movie props, and even artist Dave Gibbons at the Museum of Comic and Cartoon Art. I heard on April 30 that there was a panel of famed X-Men writer Chris Claremont discussing the origins of Wolverine at the museum. I’m jealous because he basically defined the character, just In time for the crapfest film that is Wolverine: Origins. Also noted: I did not take the picture above but is from [X]press photographer Dalton Blanco.
