We Hereby Cast a Vote for This Misfits-Inspired Image as SFMOMA's New Logo

Posted By on Wed, Jul 20, 2011 at 8:30 AM

Whatever you have to do, whoever you are, whether you like modern art or not, get behind this Misfits-inspired image as the new logo for the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art and be a force for radness in the world:

Right? We could parse the challenges of creating a new logo for a world-class art museum any day, but let's just skip all that, agree with our friends at the Bay Citizen, and imagine that the museum's graphic imprint is actually an ode to the Misfits.

It's not. The above image was one submitted in a contest for you (or you! or you!) to imagine a new logo for SFMOMA. Entries are being posted to the museum's Facebook page; the one with the most number of likes by 5 p.m. today will earn its creator a copy of 75 Years Looking Forward, a book on the history of the museum. Sadly, your design will probably not become the museum's permanent logo. But we can still hope, right?

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
