If visitors were to spend an average of 7 seconds per piece, you will need 194.1 days to admire all the artworks found in SFMOMA’s possesion.

Given this large number of artworks, the people at SFMOMA decided to come up with a way to make their art available to everybody, without having to stroll countless hours in a museum in order to find something to enjoy.
