Let us help you plan your day at SFMOMA with these don’t-miss highlights. Start your visit with the remarkable new works in SOFT POWER on Floors 4 and 7. Step outside to enjoy the abundant greenery of our famous Living Wall, then work your way downstairs to the Roberts Family Gallery and take in the vibrant digital mural by JR. Relax and reflect at one of our artisanal eateries, and stop by the store for a quick browse before you go!
The exhibition SOFT POWER is about the ways in which artists deploy art to explore their roles as citizens and social actors. Presented on two floors of the museum, it features new commissions and recent works by twenty international artists. Taken together, the works in SOFT POWER demonstrate what cultural theorist and filmmaker Manthia Diawara has called a solidarity between intuitions — a concept that acknowledges the complexity, darkness, and opacity from which our reality emerges — that expresses the poetry and imagination of our differences.
From family-friendly California-fusion fare at Cafe 5 to Michelin-star dining at In Situ, there are options for anyone looking to fuel up during their visit. In the mood for something lighter? Sightglass has two locations now featuring tasty and Instagram-worthy coffee creations and treats—on Floor 3 and in our free public space (museum admission is not required).
Celebrate our extraordinary, unique, and diverse city in The Chronicles of San Francisco, by internationally known artist JR. Presented in SFMOMA’s soaring Roberts Family Gallery, this digital mural scrolls across a bank of screens and brings together the faces and stories of people we encounter every day. This work is free and accessible to the public.
Take a piece of the museum home with you! Curated as carefully as our exhibitions, the Museum Store has an amazing collection of books, home goods, jewelry, toys, and more — it’s the perfect one-stop shop. The best part: every purchase supports SFMOMA’s exhibitions and education programs.
Step outside for a little fresh air and take in over 19,000 plants on our thirty-foot-tall Living Wall. As the largest living wall in the United States, it’s a beautiful backdrop for the sculptures nearby ― and for your own photo op.
