Those who follow our Facebook page are often treated to pictures of noted individuals with cats on their birthdays, courtesy of the Cat Museum of San Francisco. (And if you don’t follow us on Facebook, this is one more reason that you should!) It turns out that the Cat Museum of San Francisco does exist in the real world as well as online. While they don’t have a permanent “museum” space, they do have pop-up exhibits from time to time. I had the opportunity to see one of these at Sunday Streets in the Mission back in April.
The exhibit featured numerous cat-related prints in a variety of styles. It was veritable catnip for someone who loves both art and cats.
The Cat Museum of San Francisco “is dedicated to exploring the relationship between people and their feline friends.” According to their website:
We are a brand new 501(c)(3) non profit organization established in the Fall of 2010. Our goal is to create a facility here in San Francisco where we can collect, exhibit and interpret objects, related to the Cat.
Visit www.catmuseumsf.org for more information and online exhibits. We at CatSynth certainly hope this project continues to grow.
