The Fisher Collection + SFMOMA

This morning SFMOMA announced the development of what looks to be one heck of a partnership with Gap Inc. founders Doris and Don Fisher:  One that will tuck their renowned collection—one of the world’s leading in contemporary art—neatly at home at our museum.

The Fisher Collection includes more than 1,100 works, by artists such as Alexander Calder, Chuck Close, Willem de Kooning, Richard Diebenkorn, Anselm Kiefer, Ellsworth Kelly, Roy Lichtenstein, Brice Marden, Agnes Martin, Gerhard Richter, Richard Serra, Cy Twombly, and Andy Warhol.

  • Hey very nice website, the content is written in a simple yet very effective manner so even the newbie could understand and put these great tips to practise, I will be coming back to check out your new post, thanks again.

  • Hey – good weblog, simply looking around some blogs, appears a pretty nice platform You Are using. I’m currently using Drupal for a couple of of my sites however trying to change one in all them over to a platform very a lot the same to yours as a trial run. Something specifically you’ll recommend about it?

  • You should check out YouTube – Donald Fisher and his art collection, where Kenneth Baker gets a tour of some of his collection, during D. Fishers attempt to build a Museum in the Presidio.

  • Hi Stephanie,

    You can see a very few images here. We’ll see in coming weeks or months what we might be able to rotate through on the blog…
