    Where do you see art?
Perhaps it’s always there, everywhere you go – waiting for you to notice. Today, snap out of the mundane and join our last #PlayArtfully game by sharing a moment that you decide is art.

    Does design shape your everyday life?

    These objects from the SFMOMA collection play artfully with form and function, and have the potential to shift perception and affect users through their subtle (or not so subtle) design.

    Whether you plan it or not, design shapes the way we all interact with the world. Today, #PlayArtfully with design and show us how you lay out your life!
