Notes from The Cartoon Art Museum and The San Francisco Museum of Modern Art

I was able to visit two museums on Thursday, December 20th: The Cartoon Art Museum and The San Francisco Museum of Modern Art. I saw some awesome puppets, a bull’s head in formaldehyde, and a painting by Jay DeFeo that took eight years to complete.  What a great way to spend end-of-the-world eve!
