Last week, Autodesk and TechShop participated in The Making Of… event at the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art Museum (SFMOMA). The Making Of…is a community collaboration by award-winning radio producers The Kitchen Sisters, Davia Nelson and Nikki Silva, and KQED. The series highlights the art, creativity, and innovation happening in backyards, workplaces, cultural institutions, and public spaces throughout the Bay Area.
In the final days before their expansion and renovation project, SFMOMA hosted a museum-wide extravaganza of activities and events that were open and free to the public. KQED’s Making Of… was one of the centerpieces of this celebration bringing makers from throughout the Bay Area to the museum to demonstrate and present what they make and why.
KQED aired a related segment on The Making Of…TechShop featuring Jesse Harrington Au, the Autodesk Maker Advocate and Blaine Dehmlow, the San Francisco Shop Manager from TechShop, discussing cool DIY projects including the roadster, a guitar making workshop and a bamboo bike.
