There are thousands of museums in the United States and many provide an interesting and useful blog on their website, including Open Space, from the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art (SFMOMA). This blog is notable because it invites participation from the local San Francisco arts community. The staff at Open Space is using blogging because of its "somewhat rowdy virtual halls and environments" where it's possible to "connect what happens inside the museum to the life and vitality of the city and the art-loving public outside and around SFMOMA." Open Space is named after a Bay Area poetry magazine that appeared in 1965, which published only local writers' and artists' work exactly as submitted, without censorship. Columnists change periodically on the blog and current columnists include art journalist and web-media producer Joseph del Pesco; visual artist Duane Deterville; poet Cedar Sigo; artist Stephanie Syjuco; and author Michelle Tea.
