“We are delighted to welcome our community back to SFMOMA after such a challenging year for so many,” Director Neal Benezra said in a press release.

The museum reopens with exhibitions that include: ‘Close to Home: Creativity in Crisis’, highlighting seven local artists’ responses to the pandemic, ‘Off the Wall’, featuring photography-based installations by five international contemporary artists whose approaches stretch the boundaries of the medium, and ‘New Work: Charles Gaines’, a new installation of two major works that explore the history of racism in the US by returning to the 1857 Dred Scott Decision.

Inspired by the long history of murals in the Bay Area and their recent resurgence, the museum has commissioned large-scale wall projects by local artists as part of a series titled ‘Bay Area Walls’.

Daily attendance is capped at 25 percent capacity. Admission tickets are timed to help pace entry into the museum and within the galleries.

Masks are required in museum and the museum store for all guests 3 and older. The museum will provide complimentary masks to those who arrive without one.

Audioguide device rental is suspended, but visitors can download the museum’s free app to enjoy audio tours.
