Our corporate overlords at the Gap have teamed up with the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art to celebrate SFMOMA‘s 75th anniversary with artistic T-shirts. Admission is free at the SoMA MoMA for this weekend’s festivities, so you’ll be assured of having plenty of mad money jingling in your pockets:
“Gap and the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art are collaborating to introduce a unique line of eight, limited edition artist-designed T-shirts as part of the museum’s 75th anniversary.
Starting Saturday, January 16, the T-shirts [$24.50] will be available in 13 Bay Area Gap stores [see complete list below], the SFMOMA MuseumStore and online at www.sfmoma.org/museumstore.
The T-shirts are designed by nine well-known artists with Bay Area connections, including Rosana Castrillo Díaz, Simon Evans, Chris Johanson, Kerry James Marshall, Barry McGee, Ed Ruscha, Leslie Shows, and Larry Sultan and Mike Mandel. See “About the Artists” below for more information on individual artists.”

Let’s see here, the bay area hasn’t heard from PETA since that thing where they pwned the South San Francisco Ronald McDonald in front of all those kids in September and the red blood bikini chicken bath thing on Van Ness last summer. Now, it seems the focus of the People for the Ethical Treatment of Animules has traveled up to the Great White North for the start of the 2009-2010 baby seal hunting season.

Living out here on the west si-iide of the country, it can be easy to get mixed up over the “DEFEND ______ + Kalishnikov AK-47 icon (or RPG/launcher or similar)” T-shirt meme. The “DEFEND BROOKLYN” shirts came first, surprisingly enough. Of course they’re easy to interpret – we are being admonished to defend Brooklyn from people like the “Williamsburg ‘tards,” whatever that means.
But DEFEND FALLUJAH is harder to figure out. The wearer is expressing support for the U.S. Marines? the Republican Guard? The Iraqi First Army? It might depend on the year that the wearer first acquired the shirt in question. It’s all a bit ambiguous.

What will be the next “-oogler” coinage to take off? Noogler, Loogler, or Xoogler?
