Rooftop Garden Inaugural Exhibition

May 10–December 31, 2009

SFMOMA’s rooftop sculpture garden and pavilion showcase a changing group of large-scale works from the museum’s collection, as well as selections from the Doris and Donald Fisher Collection. Works currently on view include a selection of works by Robert Arneson, Louise Bourgeois, Mark di Suvero, and Barnett Newman.

The San Francisco Museum of Modern Art’s Rooftop Garden is made possible through the generous support of the following leadership gifts: the Mimi and Peter Haas Fund, Barbara and Gerson Bakar, the Jean and James Douglas Family, Patricia and William Wilson III, and Carolyn and Preston Butcher.
