100 Museums to Visit Before You Die

San Francisco Museum of Modern Art (SFMOMA)

Location: San Francisco

2013 Exhibitions: South Africa in Apartheid and After: David Goldblatt, Ernest Cole, Billy Monk (December 1 - March 5)

SFMoMA was the first museum on the West Coast solely devoted to the preservation and exhibition of 20th century art, and since its establishment in 1935, the museum has acquired over 26,000 works. Some brief highlights from SFMoMA's collection are Diego Rivera's The Flower Carrier, furniture from architect-designer Eero Saarinen, and A Set of Six Self-Portraits from Andy Warhol. Although this legendary museum houses some of the most important works of the 20th century, the building itself is also borderline sublime. The museum is currently in the process of expansion and will be closing their doors on June 2, 2013 for three years until the unveiling of SFMoMA's new complex addition in early 2016.
