Art – And The Structures That House It – Takes Time


The San Francisco Museum of Modern Art (SFMOMA) recently underwent a major transformation and will officially re-open its doors to the public on May 14, 2016.

A DSLR megapixel construction camera was onsite to document each stage of the project and can been seen with its newest time-lapse movie, provided courtesy of EarthCam.

If you like building things, design, or are merely anticipating MOMA’s May 14 opening, this may be of interest. The Snøhetta-designed expansion more than doubles the museum’s exhibition space and integrates the existing space with new to create a welcoming and unique environment. The expanded building is on track to achieve LEED Gold certification, its designers say, thanks to the use of green building materials and systems.

  1. Cool video but overall design looks like the back end of the Titanic to me. Knowing full well that art is in the eye of the beholder. And do they get any light in there?? That said, I’ll be going over when it opens.

  2. I have a Bullfights painting on velvet I think is modern. Got it for about two dollars in Ensenada. You can have it for $10. I need the gas money.

  3. “back end of the Titanic”. I can definitely see that. Good eye!

    Paintings on velvet are rare. I would hold on to that for the grandkids. It might be worth something some day!
