Museums are the places where ordinary things turn into extraordinary. But they are not always the places for the wealthy to keep their private collections, a place representing a particular culture or a destination to house exotic things or aspects of the world. Some museums are quirky, weird and untraditional too. And some are not museums at all!
One such is the Museum of Ice Cream (MOIC) in San Francisco - the only kind in the world - with its sister locations in New York, Miami and Los Angeles as well.
In this vein, we invite you to discover this unusual place – here everything is bubblegum pink and you can swim in a ‘sprinkle pool’ – through a sketch by our weekly columnist Dan Hogman.
Co-founded by Maryellis Bunn and Manish Vora, the MOIC is an interactive art exhibit with ice cream and candy themes exhibits. Here touching is not only allowed, but encouraged too!
Hogman illustrates the exterior of the building, a former bank building that was later more popularly known as the old Emporio Armani boutique. The artist sketches in detail the building’s striking facade – granite-clad with a pedimented temple front featuring a bas relief of Liberty by Haig Patigian; the architecture was derived from the Roman Pantheon.
Hogman is also of the opinion that it is an unlikely location for the Museum of Ice Cream. Maybe because the austere building, a four-minute walk from Union Square, stands juxtaposed with the whimsical nature of the museum, the modern design and bright, electric installations.
