San Francisco MOMA Opens

What started as an addition to display 1,100 artworks on loan from the Fisher family has ended up with more than 4,000 new works in the largest modern and contemporary art museum in America and the largest museum of any kind in Northern California, as measured by gallery space.

The San Francisco Museum of Modern Art reopened May 14, 2016, after being closed for three years of expansion. When it does, it will have seven floors of exhibition space, and one of those floors, the fourth, is larger than all five floors from the original building designed by Mario Botta that opened 20 years ago.

The addition and the public spaces are wonderful. A must visit for anyone coming to San Francisco.


  1. Love your MOMA sketches Cathy! You fearlessly tackle even the most daunting subjects (like the lobby and Serra sculpture) and always pull it off elegantly!

    1. Thanks Susan. It was a great place to sketch. I love the new MOMA. I always see so much more in a museum if I am sketching.
