SFMOMA is expanding…announcing now, fundraising later

SFMOMA Exterior“People go to the best art museums in the United States not just for special exhibitions but also to see their permanent collections. “That’s what distinguishes a great museum,” [Chairman Charles Schwab] said. “It’s also unquestionably the case that as people think about future homes for their collections, if you can’t present them in good-quality exhibition spaces, your chance of receiving gifts diminishes substantially. … Nobody wants to see their works live in the basement.”

The San Francisco Museum of Modern Art is planning to double in size, the announcement coming just as the museum’s board begins talks with city officials about the desired expansion, according to an article in the SF Chronicle. You can read more about this announcement by clicking here.
