San Francisco Museum of Modern Art information
Recently reopened and benefiting from expanded exhibition space, SFMOMA is SoMa's must-visit gallery. Destined from its start in 1935 to defy convention, it invested early in photography, installations, and other then-experimental media. Once the collection moved into Mario Botta’s light-filled brick box in 1995, SFMOMA leaned full-tilt toward the western horizon, pushing the art world to embrace new media, artists and ideas. For a quick hit without paying the entrance fee, take a peak at the free art on display on floors 1 and 2.
