San Francisco, United States of America
1 of 2

The San Francisco Museum of Modern Art (SFMOMA) is a modern art museum in San Francisco, California. It opened in 1935 under founding director Dr. Grace Morley (Grace L. McCann Morley, Director from 1935-1958) as the San Francisco Museum of Art, the first museum on the West Coast devoted solely to 20th-century art. In 1995 the museum moved to its current location, 151 Third Street, adjacent to Yerba Buena Gardens in the SOMA district and its showpiece facility designed by Mario Botta. Inviting comparison to the preeminent Museum of Modern Art (MoMA) in New York City, the museum re-branded itself "SFMOMA". The museum has in its collection important works by Jackson Pollock, Richard Diebenkorn, Paul Klee, Marcel Duchamp and Ansel Adams, among others.
