The San Francisco Museum of Modern Textiles is a museum in San Francisco, California, USA. It was established by The San Francisco Museum of Modern Art (SFMOMA) as the Museum of Contemporary Craft + Design in 1951. After the Craft + Design Collection moved to its current location at Fort Mason Center in 1995, the museum was closed and remained empty until 2003. At that time SFMOMA started a new program: “SFMOMA Exhibitions at the Textile Museum.” These exhibitions were organized by SFMOMA until 2008, when SFMOMA announced that it would no longer organize or present exhibitions at the museum. Instead, the museum will continue to present exhibitions under its own name, and will continue to be located on 3rd Street in San Francisco approximately one block from SFMOMA’s facility.

It is located in Yerba Buena Gardens, near several museums in the park including the Metreon and Moscone Center.

The San Francisco Museum of Modern Art has over 70,000 square feet of indoor galleries and an outdoor sculpture garden containing over 40 works of art. A non-profit organization, the museum’s mission is to develop and maintain a public collection of contemporary art for the inspiration and education of the public without regard to race, creed or sex. The museum has a focus on developing multicultural and interdisciplinary exhibition programs, emphasizing new trends in art and scholarship.

The San Francisco Museum of Modern Art is one of North America’s most important museums, actively involved in the development of new ways to present art. Built in 1935 as the first museum building in San Francisco to display both American and European modern art, the SFMOMA building was expanded by architects Mario Ciampi and George C. Yount into a landmark three-story structure in 1984. In 1991, SFMOMA opened its current location at 151 Third Street in San Francisco’s South of Market (SoMa) neighborhood, providing approximately 87,500 square feet of space with 100 percent climate control.

The museum houses one of California’s finest collections ranging from early-20th-century European masters such as Picasso and Matisse to contemporary artists such as Jenny Holzer and David Hockney. The permanent collection

The San Francisco Museum of Modern Art (SFMOMA) was established in 1935, when the area now known as Yerba Buena Gardens was a beehive of construction activity. The SFMOMA’s original building is located on Third Street between Mission and Howard streets in San Francisco’s South of Market district. When the museum first opened its doors, it began a legacy of presenting the work of artists who were on the cutting edge of their creative fields.

To celebrate its 75th anniversary in 2010, SFMOMA embarked on an ambitious expansion program. This new facility is located in downtown San Francisco at 151 Third Street, adjacent to Yerba Buena Gardens and Moscone Center. The inaugural exhibition featured 165 works from Henri Matisse’s cut-outs and paper sculptures from his later years, alongside important pieces from the Museum’s permanent collection.

The San Francisco Museum of Modern Art is the only museum in the world to present a complete overview of postwar art and architecture.  SFMOMA’s permanent collection includes more than 25,000 works of art created since 1945.

The collection contains paintings, sculptures, drawings, prints, photographs, videos, and architectural models. The museum’s holdings also include significant holdings of postwar design and illustration, African art and photography. Major artists who are represented in the collection include: Robert Rauschenberg, Roy Lichtenstein, Andy Warhol, Jasper Johns, Claes Oldenburg and Coosje van Bruggen, Richard Serra and John Chamberlain, David Hockney and Gerhard Richter.

SFMOMA owns one of the most significant collections of modern architecture in the world. The collection consists of more than 2,000 models and photographs documenting important architectural works throughout the 20th century. The collection includes blueprints for works by Walter Gropius (founder of the Bauhaus school), Frank Lloyd Wright (the “father” of American architecture), Mies van der Rohe (architect of New York’s Seagram Building), Richard Neutra (a California architect whose work represents a bridge between traditional and modern architecture), Le Corbusier
