FX field trip: SFMOMA and Yerba Buena

For our second FX class, we did another icebreaker (people bingo - my favorite), and then headed around the corner to the SFMOMA to check out a great photography show called Face of Our Time.

(I had seen most of the Richard Misrach project from his presentation at SF Camerawork almost a year ago. The Jim Goldberg work were amazing; I still can't get some of those images out of my head.)

Afterwards, the students interviewed each other. Because we have two separate classes for digital and film, even students who had been in the program for a while didn't really know other students if they had been in different venues. The new mentors and students already so engaged with the program, which rubbed off on the older mentors and students; everyone was just totally open to the whole experience of the day.
