After this Sunday (June 2), the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art will be closed to visitors for three years as they begin their massive renovation
to accomodate the incoming Doris and Donald Fisher Collection
. But for the next four days they're celebrating the museum's future with free admission for everyone and lots of activities, culminating with a performance art marathon and farewell procession on Sunday co-presented by Boing Boing!
The final 24 hours are jam packed with activities and celebrations: the live performance marathon starts on Saturday evening and changes out every half hour. They'll also be finishing up their Sweded version of Christian Marclay's The Clock, and this is the last 24 hour showing of the real piece in the museum.
Finally, come join us for the farewell procession on Sunday to look to the future of the new building. Local artist Desiree Holman is curating the procession, which recasts the Young American Patriots fife and drum core and Dance Sanctuary dancers as docents for the future. You're encouraged to come in your best future time traveler costume, and Teri Sage from TS I Love You Hats will be helping everyone make awesome tin foil future hats as well. We hope to see you there!

I asked Amy Parness, the co-founder of Sparkle Labs, maker of fantastic educational electronics kits, to write a Medium post about gender and the business of being a maker business person. Her terrific essay calls out the problems with “pink girly engineering kits.” From Medium:
Zero UI is the new term for “invisible interfaces”—what happens in the future when all the clicking and tapping and typing is history: “If you look at the history of computing, starting with the jacquard loom in 1801, humans have always had to interact with machines in a really abstract, complex way.” [Fast Company]
