San Francisco, California. A cityscape, without perspective, foregrounding the circular skylight of the Haas Atrium of the Museum of Modern Art (designed by the architect, Mario Botta), shot from Yerba Buena Gardens. (Postcard series)
The end of the exhibition. It was intressting to see how people reacted when they realised that it was the end, a lot went back: not really satistfied yet. Wanted more!
The building of the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art is as interesting as the art it displays. The day I was there, it became known that the museum is going to house the Fisher art collection. Mr. Donald Fisher died a few days later. This requires a considerable expansion, so in 2013 the museum closed for three years!
On my very first morning in the City by the Bay, I crossed off one of my key MO when I visit a major city: go to my place of worship. While many still get spiritual bliss in medieval churches or ancient temples, I find the sublime in other human creativity and creations. And SFMoMA delivered in giving me my fix. Its wide collection and current exhibits inspired this visitor to see visions of Frisco that I wouldn't otherwise have seen.
