With construction nearing completion, the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art (SFMOMA) has just announced the official opening date for the thoroughly transformed, 10-story SFMOMA: Saturday, May 14, 2016!

Over 20,000 square feet larger than the Museum of Modern Art in New York, it will be the largest modern and contemporary art museum in the United States. Offering nearly three times the previous exhibition space, it will feature 260 works from the Fisher Collection, a first showing of more than 600 artworks promised to the museum, and the debut of the new Pritzker Center for Photography, along with other highlights to make it a world-class institution.

“On May 14th San Francisco will experience the extraordinary scope of the SFMOMA collection for the first time and see firsthand how the newly expanded museum will be able to serve our community, art lovers and school children in exciting ways we’ve only dreamed of doing in the past,” says Charles R. Schwab, Chairman of SFMOMA’s Board of Trustees.
