Opened in 1995, the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art houses a permanent collection of over 15,000 works, including 4700 paintings, sculptures, works on paper, and 9000 photographs. The museum has exhibited the works of Henri Matisse, Richard Diebenkorn, Dorothea Lange, Paul Klee, Cindy Sherman, Matthew Barney and many contemporary artists. Designed by Swiss architect Mario Botta, the space itself is a wonder to behold. The lobby floor, for instance, is a massive chessboard. Gargantuan sculptures hang from above. This art gallery is located near the Yerba Buena Gardens.
