Bursting into the public realm in the mid-1960s, the protest poster has been used all over the world to incite change and empower the voice of the people. When visited us, she felt drawn to Get With the Action, on Floor 3. From “the gorgeous graphic design to the meaningful curation, it was super well done.” Get inspired and tell us what looks like.

sfmoma: What does #YourSFMOMA look like?
.
@rawlzzz loves how

What does look like? . loves how Richard Mayhew depicted nature in such a bright and vivid way. “He made it more about the experience of being in nature rather than the act of viewing nature itself. It had a kind of ambiguity to it where it could either be a specific place or it could easily be substituted for a place that means a lot to any viewer. Plus, I’m a sucker for pink!” . . . [Richard Mayhew, Pamela’s Aura, 2004]
