sfmoma Hometown pride! When we reopen in 2016, we will have dedicated spaces to art from California, with an eye on Bay Area art from the '50s to today. (Like: Wayne Thiebaud, Robert Arneson, Joan Brown and more!) ‪#CalifornaLove! [View of #FutureSFMOMA as seen from our neighbor, @jewseum's, yard / photo by @pixelstud] 6d

sfmoma Currently on view/protruding from the gallery walls, Barry McGee's "Untitled" (2009) seems to ooze toward the onlooker... See the bulge @OaklandMuseumCA #FertileGround #SFMOMAgo #BarryMcGee [Photo by @jeneschmitz] 1w

sfmoma Richard Serra's "Sequence" is the first artwork to move into the Snøhetta-designed wing of our rapidly expanding building, but did you know that there are TWO artworks that remain in the original Botta building while construction continues? Any guesses as to what they are?

  •   jaimepeaches @vinophile Serra! 1w
  •   sfmoma @seogju That is a great guess! The design + specs of the Wall Drawings are in SFMOMA's collection, so they may be reinstalled in the future but those aren't the two. 1w
  •   sfmoma @jonibinder That's one. While the building's under construction, that piece stays put, protected behind a wall. 1w
  •   roodad The Matthew Barney Wall Drawing? 1w
  •   alpulabri Like a oil tanker 1w
  •   rulegallery 1w
  •   sfmoma @roodad Yep! That is indeed the other one. While the building's under construction, Matthew Barney's "Drawing Restraint 14" remains covered in the oculus. 1w
  •   celizabethforte Sequence!!!! 1w

sfmoma #FutureSFMOMA Fact: When we reopen next year, our gallery space will more than double (to just over 125,000 square feet—whoa, baby) and will include three galleries devoted exclusively to California art. #CaliforniaLove‬ [Photo by @aritarver] 2w
  •   cierrabrooke Like really, major props to your social media/brand presence for not going dark during the build. That would have been easy- no museum, no art to show- but every week I love scrolling your account to still appreciate art, wherever it exists. At the end of it all, I love you. 2w
  •   sfmoma @cierrabrooke Thank you so much! We appreciate the kind words and our social media gal (hi! ) especially appreciates the props! 2w
  •   aritarver Thank you @sfmoma for the repost! 2w
  •   miranda_gunnarsson @sfmoma I agree with @cierrabrooke, really appreciate your feed! Especially that you take your time to respond to comments, which is not so often the case for larger institutions and museums ! Is this something that is included in your communication plan or rather just something you do because you feel like it ? 1w
  •   sfmoma @miranda_gunnarsson Thank you, Miranda! Our plan? Since social media is meant to be social, we're social! Besides, no one wants to be a robot or hear from a robot.  1w
  •   miranda_gunnarsson @sfmoma Thanks for your response! I think you're absolutely right, and that museums need to the social not only in media but in a larger sense. Keep up the good work 1w

sfmoma Steady... steadyyyy. It takes all this clamping, hoisting, winching, and lowering because Richard Serra's "Sequence" is a whopping 213 tons! A single steel plate (there are 12 total) weighs between 11-24 tons. #SerraMovesIn #FutureSFMOMA #RichardSerra 2w

sfmoma Bit by bit, Richard Serra's "Sequence" is moving into the building—while we're still building! It's the first piece of art to move in (eep!) and when we reopen in 2016, anyone can come see it in a free public gallery! 'Til then, we're building around it. #SerraMovesIn #FutureSFMOMA #RichardSerra 2w

sfmoma "People will never understand what we are doing if they can't feel. All art is abstract. All music is abstract. But it's all real..."—#JoanMitchell, born on this day in 1925. [From the #SFMOMAcollection: Joan Mitchell, "Untitled," ca. 1960] 3w

sfmoma Color! An antidote to a dark + stormy day. Enjoy the chromotherapy over on our Tumblr (sfmoma.tumblr.com) where you can also share your art for a chance to be featured on #SubmissionFriday. Pictured sunny submission: "Demeter" by Joe Papagoda (@papagoda) 4w

sfmoma From ‪the #SFMOMAgo exhibition at @oaklandmuseumca: this relationship map links together a creative family of people + places! The idea came from a project by local artist Amanda Eicher where she invited Mission artists to @AdobeBookshop to call out the names of places + people important to them. She wrote the "roll call" directly onto the bookshop’s walls, and to evoke a similar feeling, Eicher painted these relationship maps for each section of the #FertileGround exhibition!

sfmoma The view right now from the #futureSFMOMA construction cam as the sun starts to set on the city. That shimmery light reflecting off the facade never gets old. It's all coming together and in 2016, you'll have a sparkling new SFMOMA! You can watch real-time progress at sfmoma.me/WatchUsWork (those caps are case-sensitive). 1mon
