The thousands of artworks at SFMOMA offer countless opportunities to look closely and think deeply about some of the most amazing artists of our time. To celebrate both the artists on view in the newly expanded museum and the creative communities of the Bay Area, 50 Artists invites local artists and creative professionals to share how icons of modern and contemporary art matter to them. This week, Jordan Stein and Lindsey White investigate the world of Robert Colescott.

He has organized exhibitions at the Renaissance Society at the University of Chicago, Philip Johnson’s Glass House, New Haven, CT; Yale Union, Portland; Berkeley Art Museum and Pacific Film Archive; and more.
