Founded in 1935, SFMOMA collects modern and contemporary work by artists from around the world. The collection of more than thirty thousand artworks include four major categories: architecture and design, media arts, painting and sculpture, and photography.
SFMOMA has deep holdings of work by individual artists across their careers, particularly in the Painting and Sculpture collection and the Museum is also dedicated to supporting and collecting the work of California artists, especially those active in the Bay Area.
In addition to extensive gallery space, there is a glass pavilion and two open-air spaces featuring a rotating selection of indoor and outdoor sculpture from the museum’s permanent collection.
Please check the museum website for updated exhibition information. Scheduling may have been modified as a result of the temporary museum closure.
