The SFMOMA has launched the Rauschenberg Research Project
, an online database of the Rauschenbergs in their permanent collection. Each piece of art is available in high resolution (click 'download' for the high-res image), along with commentary, interviews, essays
, maps, contact prints, or other pertinent information, including its ownership history, any markings on the piece, and its exhibition history. All the files related to a particular piece can be downloaded in one go (bottom link of every page).

Did you know that there's an art museum on the moon? A tiny, tiny one. The Moon Museum
features works by Forrest "Frosty" Myers
(the instigator), Robert Rauschenberg
, Claes Oldenburg
, Andy Warhol
, David Novros
, and John Chamberlain
, inscribed on a little chip of silicon and surreptitiously transported
to the moon's surface on the Apollo 12 mission. But of course there's a mystery, in this big of a secret: who is John F.
, the engineer at least partially responsible for smuggling the chip onboard the lunar lander?
