AAA Editor Notes
San Francisco Museum of Modern Art (SFMOMA) is at 151 Third St. (between Mission and Howard sts.); there are entrances on Third and Howard sts. BART and Muni public transportation and pay parking garages are close by. The museum reopened in May 2016 following a 3-year expansion and renovation project that nearly tripled the available gallery space.

The 10-story building, designed by architectural firm Snøhetta, features an exterior of rippling white fiberglass-reinforced polymer that evokes fog rolling in off the ocean, an iconic by-product of the Bay Area's topography and marine climate. It also incorporates elements of the original brick, granite and glass structure designed by Swiss architect Mario Botta.

Inside, seven floors of galleries showcase a noteworthy collection of modern and contemporary art, including paintings, sculpture, media arts, photography and design objects. The 19 inaugural exhibitions include a curated selection from the Doris and Donald Fisher Collection, new to the museum's permanent holdings, and a floor devoted to the Pritzker Center for Photography. Temporary exhibitions also are offered.

Artists represented range from Diego Rivera, Marcel Duchamp and Alfred Stieglitz to Richard Serra, Agnes Martin and Chuck Close. The Fisher Collection focuses on American pop and abstract art as well as post-1960 German art, with works by such notables as Ellsworth Kelly, Gerhard Richter and Andy Warhol.

Another new feature is the 45,000 square feet of public space on the first and second floors that is free to visitors. Art installations in this free space include San Francisco artist Richard Serra's enormous, interlocking metal maze sculpture “Sequence” in the Roberts Family Gallery.

Special exhibitions are presented regularly. Flash photography and the use of a camera tripod or selfie sticks is not permitted. Backpacks must be hand-carried or worn in front.

Food is available.
