In 1995 SFMOMA was one of the first museums to launch an institutional website. Since then we have developed a longstanding reputation for leadership in the online arena, both for our innovative design sensibility as well as our award-winning curatorial and educational programming.

The current iteration of sfmoma.org was launched in November 2008. In keeping with our institutional mission to stimulate greater engagement with modern and contemporary art, the site offers a fluid space of exploration in which visitors can easily navigate between our online collection of thousands of artworks, our diverse array of special exhibitions and events, and our wealth of multimedia content about the art and artists of our time. Ultimately, our hope is to facilitate meaningful, face-to-face encounters between our visitors and the art — wherever those encounters may take place.

We should note that this website would not have been possible without a pivotal early grant from the Evelyn and Walter Haas, Jr. Fund, as well as a generous Museums for America grant from the Institute of Museum and Library Services (IMLS). We are grateful for their support.
