Home is Where the **Art Is


Prior to the closing of San Francisco’s original DeYoung Museum, curator Glen Helfand invited Bay Area artists to reflect on or “consider” the nature of a museum for a final exhibition entitled “Museum Pieces.”

MOB considered the question “Why are museums so cold, so uninviting and formal?” and endeavored to recreate the institution as a warmer, more hospitable living space. They surveyed visitors, and came up with highly appropriate decorating solutions for a section of the museum.
