It started with a question — what if we asked Carissa Potter to draw her interpretation of the SFMOMA Living Wall? —  and it led to a beautiful collaboration.
The Museum Store book buyers are dedicated to sharing their knowledge of, and enthusiasm for, new titles with our staff and visitors. Every season they carefully review publishers’ offerings to select books that reflect SFMOMA’s collection and mission.
Our home products buyer first discovered Fellow in New York where founder Jake Miller was exhibiting some of his early products, including the Stagg EKG Electric Kettle.
