San Francisco Museum Of Modern Art (SFMOMA)
Opened in 1995, the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art houses a permanent collection of over 15,000 works, including 4,700 paintings, sculptures, works on paper, and 9,000 photographs. The museum has exhibited the works of Henri Matisse, Richard Diebenkorn, Dorothea Lange, Paul Klee, Cindy Sherman, Matthew Barney and many contemporary artists. Designed by Swiss architect Mario Botta, the space itself is a wonder to behold. The lobby floor, for instance, is a massive chessboard. Gargantuan sculptures hang from above. This art gallery is located near the Yerba Buena Gardens.
The collection here was a feast for the eyes... works I had never seen before. But what was special about this museum, in my opinion, was the curator's notes on the wall beside the art works: they really guided me to an appreciation beyond what I could have brought to the museum myself. Also I enjoyed the way works of art by different artists were placed near each other in ways that showed the influence of one artist on the other.
The cafe was excellent as well.
