Rob Lucas pointed me to urbancurators.com. The art that they “create” in their project is as striking as just about anything at the SFMOMA.

“The goal of the Urban Curators project is to engage the public in the celebration of the decaying urban environment, recognizing its inherent aesthetic qualities as well as the important role that it plays within our cultural habitat. The project achieves its goal by elevating common, overlooked objects and spaces within the city of Providence, Rhode Island to the level of high art.
Literally hanging gold, gallery-style frames in derelict spaces within the city, we are framing objects and views that are of aesthetic or cultural value.”
