Calder to Warhol: Introducing The Fisher Collection

On View June 25-September 19, 2010 at the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art

By


Calder to Warhol: Introducing The Fisher Collection will give lucky visitors at the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art their first look at the fantastic Doris and Donald Fisher Collection, whose long-term loan agreement with SFMOMA was recently extended from 25 to 100 years. In the summer of 2010, some 160 core Collection works of painting, photography, sculpture and video will be on display in the Museum's fourth- and fifth-floor galleries, as well as on the Rooftop Garden that opened in May of 2009.

Comprised of over 1,100 objects (most of which have never before been on public display) by 185 American and European artists, the Fisher Collection spans Modern and Contemporary Art from 1928 to the present. SFMOMA is currently raising funds towards its expansion and goal of building a dedicated wing in which to house the Collection--all treasures in which Bay Area citizens can take great pride.
