As part of the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art (SFMOMA)’s expansion project, the museum has gone beyond its walls and directly into the community with extensive off-site programming while its building is temporarily closed for construction from June 3, 2013, to early 2016. SFMOMA’s On the Go programming includes a dynamic slate of jointly organized and traveling museum exhibitions, outdoor and site-specific installations, and newly created education initiatives throughout the Bay Area and beyond.

During the two-and-a-half-year construction period leading up to the building’s reopening, SFMOMA will experiment with new ideas, engage in dialogue with a range of cultural partners, and create innovative ways for audiences to experience the museum’s collection, bringing the best of these ideas and initiatives back into its newly expanded home.
