Thank you for posting this URL. There has been many debates about
vs. museum the past couple of years in the art world. Because museums are
very tight on who exhibits and when (the waiting list is more than a couple
of years), artists have been exhorting on the net and finally, finally,
museums are taking notice. San Francisco Museum of Modern Art (SFMOMA) is
more progressive than MOCA (NY)and MOMA (LA). Howard Cohen was the first
robotics artist to exhibit in 1978 at SFMOMA. I'm glad that they are
recognizing and doing something about it.
