The SFMOMA is one of the most inventive museums of modern and contemporary art. Celebrating its 75th anniversary with a brand new rooftop garden, it has something for every taste: traditional paintings and sculptures to new-age mixed media. The brilliant collection features contemporary greats such as Henri Matisse, Alfred Stieglitz, Marcel Duchamp, and of course, the infamous Jackson Pollock.
For art enthusiasts or simply anyone who recognizes and welcomes greatness born in our time, SFMOMA offers not only traveling exhibitions of modern artists, but also artist lectures, curator talks, film screenings, workshops and more.
Complete with an architectural model of Eliot Noye’s Westinghouse 1964 New York World’s Fair Pavilion, as seen in the Men in Black movie, and Andy Warhol’s Red Liz, the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art is an excellent and eye-opening museum.
