SAN FRANCISCO (Gasia Mikaelian/KTVU) - The San Francisco Museum of Modern Art launched a free texting service called "Send Me SFMOMA."
By texting 572-51 with a request such as "send me desserts," or "send me romance," the server will respond moments later with an image from the SFMOMA collection, including the title, the artist, and the year of its creation.
The service is powered by SFMOMA’s Collection API, which has data on all of the 35,000-plus pieces of art in the collection. When the algorithm finds something that matches your request it responds with a picture of the piece, artist, title and date. If more than one piece match the keyword you sent, the number will send a random one each time you send that keyword.
