Thomas Hawk, the Inland Empire welcomes you!

The social media/blogging community is rather insular at times, so you may not have heard the the community is all a'flutter about an altercation between photographer Thomas Hawk and the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art's Simon Blint. I wrote about this - twice - in one of my other blogs.

This raised the question - if Hawk were to come south to the Inland Empire with a camera, would he be tossed out of our local museum, the San Bernardino County Museum?

So I checked the Museum's Security and Visitor Services page.

Photography and Sketching

Photography, videotaping, and sketching are permitted at the Museum. Some exhibits may have restrictions on photography and videotaping.

For press photography and filming projects, please contact our Marketing Division at (909) 307-2669 ext. 227 / TDD/TTY: (909) 792-1462. or email Marketing.

So what would Hawk see? Currently, the Museum has four exhibits that are open:

Jan. 19 - Nov. 2 Special Exhibit - All that Glitters: A Century of Razzle-Dazzle
Mar. 1 - Oct. 26 Special Exhibit - A Feast for the Eyes
May 3 - Nov. 2 Special Exhibit - Sticks and Stones
May 3 - Oct. 26 Special Exhibit - A Piece of My Heart
