San Francisco Museum of Modern Art

On January 18, SFMOMA marked its 75th year as a pioneering force in art, locally and globally. From mounting Jackson Pollock's first solo museum exhibition in 1945 to exhibiting vernacular photographs and championing the emerging Mission School scene in the mid-1990s, SFMOMA has consistently broken new ground, expanding the conventional wisdom of what an art museum should present and collect.

The Anniversary Show brings together more than 400 works from the collection, including paintings, drawings, prints, sculptures, videos, photographs, architectural models, and design objects. Beginning with SFMOMA's founding in 1935, the exhibition highlights moments when the history of the museum has intersected meaningfully with the history of art.
