The New SFMoMA Opens Its Doors in May

The expanded space will re-open after being closed for three years.

San Francisco’s Modern Museum of Art will finally open its doors after being closed for nearly three years due to a $305 million USD renovation. The newly-expanded space encompasses over 170,000 square feet of indoor and outdoor gallery space, designed by international architectural firm Snøhetta. According to The New York Times, the building will be larger than the Museum of Modern Art in New York and will be the largest museum in the Bay Area as it spans an entire block. Nearly 33,000 works will be on display, with a strong concentration on 20th-century art, spanning from Warhol silk-screens to Calder mobiles and more. An emphasis on geopolitical and international works will also be made as a Bauhaus-inspired installation by Portuguese artist Leonor Antunes and pieces from Ai Weiwei and Mark Bradford will all be showcased in the upgraded 10-story space.

The new SFMoMA will be open to the public starting on Saturday, May 14.
