Feeling like a Warhol this morning? Just ask San Francisco’s MoMA, and it’ll be on its way to your phone in a few seconds.
The Guardian reports: “If you fancy receiving an artwork from a world-class gallery, all you now have to do is ask. Liberating itself from the confines of physical space, the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art has launched a service that has already gone viral. You simply take out your phone and text it a request, keying in ‘Send me‘ followed by a descriptive word or an emoji.”
Want “mountains”? You got it.
Want “sadness”? You got it.
Want something orange? You got it.
SFMOMA was aiming for 100,000 texts over the summer. On Monday last week, it clocked 385,000. By the end of the week, it had passed 2 million.
