SFMOMA: See You in 2016

San Francisco Museum of Modern Art
I colored a copy of my postcard US-2165886 when I learned that the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art (SFMOMA) will be closed for renovations on June 2, 2013. Nearly 30,000 pieces of art are being packed up for the move. It is scheduled to reopen in early 2016.

During the closure period, some of its art  pieces will be loaned to other local museums including the Asian Art Museum, the Oakland Museum and the Palace of the Legion of Honor in the Bay Area. It will also exhibit some of its collections at other venues such as the City of Los Altos and San Francisco's Crissy Field.

SFMOMA is planning a  four-day celebration to kick off expansion and launch into off-site exhibitions and programs. The admission is free from Thursday, May 30 through Sunday, June 2, 2013

I visited SFMOMA in June, 2012 and bought those coloring postcards (US-2005787,
 US-2011378, and US-2165886)  and a copy of Above San Francisco Postcard Book by Robert Cameron.

So, SFMOMA: we will see you in 2016, bigger and better!
