Department of Education and Public Programs

As a complement to its lively exhibition schedule, SFMOMA’s lectures, special events, and many activities for kids and families are a vital part of the museum’s educational outreach efforts. These interpretive programs are complemented by a corps of more than 200 docents who lead tours and other activities related to the museum's collections and exhibitions. John S. Weber served as curator of education and public programs from 1993 to 2005, playing an integral role as peer to SFMOMA's four collections curators and collaborating closely on the content, presentation, and interpretation of the permanent collection and special exhibitions. Dominic Willsdon succeeded Weber in December 2005 as the Leanne and George Roberts Curator of Education and Public Programs.
