San Francisco Museum of Modern Art Pilot Podcast Series
On November 16, 2005, the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art (SFMOMA) launched a pilot podcast program as a way to further serve Museum visitors and foster involvement with the local and online communities. Dubbed SFMOMA Artcasts, these audio productions include exhibition features, artist interviews, and newly commissioned contributions by Bay Area music, sound, and spoken word artists. Co-developed in an innovative collaboration with Antenna Audio of Sausalito, the podcasts are available for download free of charge at < http://www.sfmoma.org/education/edu_podcasts.html >.
SFMOMA Artcasts serve as a kind of monthly audio art-zine from the Museum. The first episodes feature such artists as Chuck Close and Kiki Smith (each the subject of a retrospective at SFMOMA), Colombian-born Doris Salcedo, Bay Area artist Bruce Conner, and musicians Pamela Z and Joan Jeanrenaud. Each Artcast offers the opportunity for subscribers to join vital dialogues about modern and contemporary art, SFMOMA's collection and current exhibitions, and the dynamics of contemporary culture. The episodes draw from a menu of several types of features:
Podcasting is a hybrid of the term "broadcasting" and "iPod"-and it is the latest method for distributing audio media over the Internet. Neither podcasting nor listening to podcasts requires an iPod. Any digital audio player or computer with audio-playing software can store and play podcasts. A true podcast is distinct from other types of online media delivery because of its subscription model, which makes it like a cross between a radio show and a magazine subscription.
