Visit the beloved Richard Serra sculpture Sequence before its deinstallation begins December 26. Generously loaned by the Donald and Doris Fisher Family and installed as the first artwork in SFMOMA’s 2016 Snøhetta-designed expansion, Sequence will be reinstalled at the Iris & B. Gerald Cantor Center for Visual Arts at Stanford University. Beginning January 2, please enter SFMOMA at 151 Third Street, as our entrance at Howard Street will be closed.


SFMOMA’s free Roberts Family Gallery is a space for rotating contemporary artworks. The time has come to say goodbye to Sequence and welcome something new. Next, the museum will install French artist JR’s massive video mural, The Chronicles of San Francisco, opening to the public May 23.


The last day to walk through Sequence at SFMOMA is December 24.

Holiday hours: Open December 24 and December 31, 2018, 10 a.m.–4 p.m.; open Wednesday, December 26, 2018 and Wednesday, January 2, 2019, 10 a.m.–5 p.m.; closed December 25, 2018.

Scheduling Note for Assignment Editors:

We can accommodate media interviews and onsite shoots of the work, given at least 24 hours advance notice, until December 20. After that point, we welcome self-guided media walk-throughs with handheld photography and videography only.
