San Francisco Museum of Modern Art

The first museum on the West Coast devoted solely to twentieth-century art, the San Francisco Museum of Art opened in 1935 under the direction of Grace L. McCann Morley. The Museum, which celebrated its fiftieth anniversary in 1985, rose to international prominence under the leadership of Henry T. Hopkins (1974-86). "Modern" was added to the Museum's title in 1975 to describe its purview more accurately. SFMOMA has undertaken an extremely active special exhibitions program, both organizing and hosting traveling exhibitions. SFMOMA's permanent collection consists of over 18,000 works, including 5,600 paintings, sculptures, and works on paper; approximately 9,800 photographs; 3,200 architectural drawings, models and design objects; and a growing collection of works related to the media arts. The collection, representing California, American, and international artists, is the most comprehensive resource for modern and contemporary art on the West Coast. As a complement to its lively exhibition schedule, lectures, special events, and many activities for seniors and children are a vital part of SFMOMA's educational outreach efforts. The Museum's Research Library comprises over forty thousand catalogued items, including monographs, exhibition catalogues, and sixteen hundred serial titles.
