The Modern Ball 2016

May 12, 2016


We couldn’t have done it without you!

From the boundless energy of the sold-out crowd to the record-breaking results of the Gala Dinner live auction, The Modern Ball 2016 exceeded all expectations and continued the thrilling momentum of our Opening Events.

We would like to thank all of our 2,500 guests, ticket and table purchasers, donors, sponsors, and partners for your support of this thrilling evening — the first in our new home, and a triumphant celebration of a bold new chapter for SFMOMA.

Your generous support of The Modern Ball helps sustain the exhibitions and programs that inspire countless families, teachers, and students every day.
