DNA Art at MoMA Store

DNA print

For about $500, you can have your DNA profile printed and framed through the Museum of Modern Art online store website, putting a new spin on the concept of family portrait. This full service is offered through a company called DNA 11, which controls the entire process from running a gel to the printing and varnishing. Artists who work on your print even sign the back to ensure authenticity. A swab kit is provided with each purchase to collect a sample from you, a family member, a pet, or anything that contains DNA (but why would you want to pay $500 to frame chicken liver DNA?). Once the company receives your DNA sample, it can take up to six weeks to deliver your high-quality print.

Speaking of DNA art, the MoMA store also features DNA-inspired jewelries by Andrea Valentini such as this bracelet shown below. Earrings and necklaces are also part of this collection.
