Fractional gift of Vicki and Kent Logan

September 29, 1998 - January 03, 1999

In December 1997, SFMOMA received an unprecedented fractional gift of approximately 250 works from the collection of Bay Area residents Vicki and Kent Logan, one of the most exciting and important collections of contemporary art being formed in the United States today. This fall, the Museum is presenting an exhibition comprising twenty-seven paintings, sculptures, and photographs that give an overview of the scope of the entire collection. It is the first of seven small-scale and focused exhibitions from the Logan Collection to be presented throughout the next ten years. In 2002 the collection will be highlighted in a large survey exhibition.
