Current and Past Exhibits at SFMOMA

Frida Kahlo Exhibit

The Haas Family’s legacy of supporting art for all people

With support from the Haas, Jr. Fund, these exhibitions have helped bring powerful art to more people in the Bay Area.

The Haas family has always believed that the transformative power of art should be open and accessible to everyone. The Haas, Jr. Fund has therefore supported a number of unique exhibitions at the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art. Learn more about a few of these compelling exhibits at the links below.

Matisse and Diebenkorn

This season, SFMOMA along with the Baltimore Museum of Art come together to present a new view of two of the twentieth century’s most extraordinary painters, Matisse and Diebenkorn. This exhibit brings together 100 seminal paintings and drawings exploring the connection in subject, style, color, and technique between both painters.

In 2012 SFMOMA brought together 90 paintings, sculptures, drawings and prints from the 60 year career of innovative American artist Jasper Johns. Johns’ sometimes muted style transformed American painting and explored the different ways we have of seeing.

Kerry James Marshall in the Atrium

The Haas, Jr. Atrium, a section of the museum accessible without purchasing a ticket, became home in 2009 to several large murals by celebrated African-American artist Kerry James Marshall. The murals use coloring book style depictions of colonial plantation life to explore the lives of slaves and others often forgotten by American revolutionary history. Marshall then helped teens craft a mural of their own community history at a skatepark in West Oakland.

Frida Kahlo

The Mexican-born artist’s still-lifes, self-portraits and photographs explore struggles both personal and primal. The Fund’s focus on bringing this 2008 exhibit to the Bay Area’s diverse community helped make this one of the most popular SFMOMA exhibitions ever.
