San Francisco Museum of Modern Art
More information about the building can be found here:http://www.sfmoma.org/pages/about_building
There is a great collection of modern paintings – so many of the big names of abstract expressionism and other modern movements are there. How wonderful it is to see the actual works of the iconic artists in their natural color and size.I was very pleasantly surprised to be able to take photos of the paintings and sculptures in the SFMOMA. There was one exhibit of photographs that they asked photos not be taken. Here are a few of the photos I took of the works that I admired:
Not only are there many excellent paintings, the SFMOMA has a interesting display of 3-dimensional works such as these:
I came out of this place inspired and absolutely pumped-up, eager to create, to paint, to paint big!
When I get back to SF, I will definitely be revisiting the SFMOMA and I don’t hesitate recommending it to everyone with a taste for modern art.
