SFMOMA expansion

On Monday, San Francisco mayor Gavin Newsom announced the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art’s planned expansion, which includes taking over the Howard Street fire station, and spending $14 million to relocate it to a new building.

The additional space will house the contemporary and modern art collection of the Fisher family, founders of the Gap. Last September, SFMOMA announced that long time San Francisco residents Doris and Donald Fisher planned to house their 1100 piece collection at SFMOMA.

    I think this is the best news I’ve heard since there’s been so many problems with planning. The first location at The Presidio was the worst idea, but having the museum downtown is better.
