SF MoMA to Open New Center for Photography

The San Francisco Museum of Modern Art will be establishing the John and Lisa Pritzker Center for Photography. Funded with a lead gift from the Pritzkers alongside support from other patrons, the 15,000-square-foot space will be the largest of its kind devoted to photography of any museum in the US, and will occupy almost all of the third floor of the expanded museum, which is designed by Snøhetta, and which will make its debut in 2016. Said John Pritzker, “The Bay Area has always played an important role in the history of photography and is home to a uniquely vibrant and engaged community of enthusiasts and private collectors.”
