But did you know… that the Internet is made of sand? Of silicon wafers like the high plateaux of East California! Of deserts stacked on deserts! Of long, lonely highways (diodes, transistors) where impulses journey like traveling salesmen! Of fateful crossroads (Boolean gates) like the one where Oedipus killed his father!

COYOTE (Call Off Your Old Tired Ethics) was founded in 1973 as a union and advocacy group for prostitutes and others involved in the sex industry. Founded by Margo St. James, a former prostitute and madam, the group advocates for the decriminalization of prostitution as well as providing education to the public, expert testimony in legal cases and support and services to those involved in sex work. This button, from the mid-70s shortly after COYOTE was founded, features one of the group’s tag lines, “A Loose Woman’s Organization.” COYOTE is still active today with chapters in multiple states.

BIG NEWS: when our building reopens in 2016, SFMOMA will have the most space dedicated to photography of any art museum in the United States!

· The just-announced Pritzker Center for Photography will allow us to nearly triple the number of permanent collection photographs that are shown at SFMOMA each year.

· The center will feature new special exhibition and enhanced permanent collection galleries, an innovative activity-based interpretive center, and a state-of-the-art print study center.

· As we further expand our commitment to the medium of photography, we are also pleased to announce that our photography collection has grown by more than 500 works since our last Collections Campaign update in 2012 [LINK], bringing the grand total to more than 17,000 works – our largest collection in any medium.

· Representing the pioneering spirit and deep history of our photography program, the Pritzker Center for Photography will make SFMOMA a global destination for anyone with an interest in the medium.
