For $9, today's side deal gets you one adult general admission to the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art on Third Street (an $18 value). This deal is only valid from August 27 through September 3, 2010, and SFMOMA is closed on Wednesdays.
The San Francisco Museum of Modern Art (SFMOMA) brings together some of the great art and artists of the modern age through a variety of exhibitions, talks, and other programming. The 75-year-old institution's permanent collection of more than 26,000 works of art allows it to provide guests with a rich variety of disparate exhibitions, such as "Calder to Warhol: Introducing the Fisher Collection,". This exhibition invites museum-goers to make the acquaintance of more than 160 pieces—including works by Chuck Close, Roy Lichtenstein, Cy Twombly, and others—drawn from a larger collection that SFMOMA will house and display through a partnership with Doris and Donald Fisher, who founded Gap. The collection will not be on public view again until the expanded Museum reopens in 2016. "New Topographics: Photographs of a Man-Altered Landscape," provides a frank and sometimes bleak look at the landscape as reinvented by human hands, and "Prints by Paul Klee (1946)," is a re-staging of a show first held at the museum just after World War II. Weekly Curator Talks, including Peter Samis' upcoming discussion of Sigmar Polke's "Untitled (Magician)," augment the material on view throughout the museum by spotlighting individual artists and works.
