And finally after 3 years closed, SFMOMA is back!!!
I had the opportunity to go for a membership preview, and I have to say that I love it! The expansion to the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art reimagines SFMOMA as a new art experience and gateway into the city.
SFMOMA is opening with 19 special exhibitions, including highlights from the renowned fisher collection, hundreds of works promised through the campaign for art, and the new pritzker center for photography inaugurate museum.
‘our design seeks to create an intimate experience, welcoming a diversity of visitors to the magnificent collection, and fostering a connection between the visitor and museum for years to come,’ explains craig dykers, founding partner of snøhetta. ‘all of the senses will be engaged as part of the experience. wonderful day lit staircases lead visitors from floor to floor, the galleries create a comfortable viewing experience of the art, and terraces allow for moments of repose, to be reinvigorated by fresh air, sunlight and vistas of the city between galleries. the visitor should sense that the building is inspired by one of the great cities of the world, san francisco.’
