What you'll do

Absorb great works while immersed in music

Early abstract artist Wassily Kandinsky was inspired by synesthesia - hearing of color. We'll throw on headphones, strap on a subwoofer pack, and experience SF's modern art in a new way! We'll dance through massive steel sculptures & meditate on minimalist paintings while jamming to songs that breathe new life into familiar masterpieces. The goal is to help you feel the art, not understand it.

Where you'll be

We'll meet in Yerba Buena Gardens, the cultural heart of the city, before making our way to the newly renovated SFMOMA, which has the largest modern art collection in SF and houses some of my favorite pieces. We'll finish up on the outdoor terrace of Cafe 5 for a drink and to share our thoughts.

This was a truly unique experience that created a different way to connect with art. Whether you know a lot about art or have never been to a gallery, you'll be getting something accessable, different and immersive. As a long time lover of abstract art, I'd not ever thought to do something like this and it gave a completely different connection to the artists and artworks. Ryan is a joyful, knowledgeable and engaging host that will allow you to not feel silly while having the occasional dance or interaction with the art. The chat afterwards was really engaging too. He's done a great job of carefully curing the experience. I'd recommend this to anyone - locals & visitors, art buffs & novices, old & young.

Ryan has created a fantastic experience that is truly unique. He has obviously spent a lot of time, energy and creative thinking in building this experience. He’s a really lovely, creative chap and we loved looking at the art, listening to the tracks and dancing (sometimes) round the museum with him! I went with my 12 year old son who is into music but not really art museums. It would have been very hard to persuade him to go to SFMOMA so really appreciate Ryan’s fantastic creation. Afterwards, my son said it was the best thing we did in San Francisco! Praise indeed. We’re so glad that we booked this experience and so happy that Ryan was inspired to put it together. Book it now and experience something totally different! Thanks so much Ryan.

BOOK THIS NOW! I absolutely loved this experience. I was unsure it would be worth it since I’m not into art but this completely changed my perspective. Wish it could have been longer I love it so much

Ryan quickly diffused my skepticism by providing an incredibly unique experience, and I’m so glad I did this! Ryan’s spirit of entrepreneurship, innovation, and charisma for what he does really brought a lot to the experience. I felt a little silly at first wearing a bass pack, but it enhanced my walk throughout the SFMOMA exhibits - The pop rocks and lavender/rose scents topped the experience! Ryan’s well-thought out curated playlist was fantastic! I feel like I can never walk throughout a museum again without my own playlist now! Hahah.

What a unique, immersive experience! I have visited the SF MoMA several times - as well as art museums and galleries all over the world - but no visit was quite like this one, thanks to Ryan's creativity and vision! He takes you on a tour of the museum that caters to ALL of your senses. So playful and fun! This experience is a must-do - whether you're a visitor to San Francisco or, like me, a resident looking for something unusual to do in the city. Thanks, Ryan!
