SFMOMA To Reopen In May

7th November 2015

After a multi-year renovation, San Francisco's Museum of Modern Art is to reopen its doors on May 14, 2016.

The significantly expanded museum will nearly triple its previous exhibition space thanks in part to a 10-storey, 235,000-square-foot addition designed by architecture firm Snohetta. That expansion is integrated with the museum's existing 225,000-square-foot building, designed by Mario Botta.

SFMOMA will open with a display of nearly 260 works by post-war and contemporary artists from the Doris and Donald Fisher Collection, as well as works from its new Pritzker Center for Photography, said to be the largest such space devoted to the medium in any US art museum.
