Release date: May 1, 2006
Beginning Memorial Day (Monday, May 29, 2006), the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art (SFMOMA) will open its galleries at 10 a.m.—one hour earlier than usual—to accommodate the summertime schedules of out-of-town visitors and local residents.
SFMOMA's expanded summer hours will give visitors additional opportunities to view such highly anticipated exhibitions as Matthew Barney: DRAWING RESTRAINT, which will be on view June 23 through September 17. SFMOMA is the only U.S. venue for this full-scale survey, the first to gather together Matthew Barney's entire DRAWING RESTRAINT series.
The Museum's summer hours will remain in effect through Labor Day (Monday, September 4). Regular hours will resume on Tuesday, September 5, when the Museum galleries will open at 11 a.m. The MuseumStore and Caffè Museo will continue to open at 10 a.m.
