Freight Elevator at SFMOMA

According to the Merriam- Webster Dictionary, art is defined as "the expression or application of human creative skill and to be appreciated primarily for their beauty or emotional power".


Larry Sultan, an American from the Bay Area is a testament to this definition. In the SFMOMA exhibit, running April 15–July 23, 2017, Sultan displays some of his most powerful works. He creates art in the form of photographs which tell the story of exploration, domesticity and family, much of which was inspired by his own family's history.

BarkerBlue was called on to help Sultan bring his work to life on the walls of the museum. However, as is the case with most projects, real life can sometimes bamboozle creative expression. In this case, the bamboozle-ment came in the form of elevator doors that covered a large portion of the display room. Luckily BarkerBlue was able to provide a solution to this problem by creating temporary elevator sleeves so that none of Sultan's work needed to be altered or eliminated (as displayed above).
