New Exhibit Opening at SFMOMA

The San Francisco Museum of Modern Art opens a new exhibit this week "Georgia O'Keeffe and Ansel Adams: Natural Affinities." The exhibit runs through September 7. The two friends, who met in Taos, New Mexico in 1929 are known for "their ability to capture, in their own unique ways, the essence of natural beauty." This exhibit brings together nearly 100 works from the artists.

I have not been to SFMOMA, but would definitely be interested in seeing this exhibit. Since I just went to Yosemite (post to follow) and Ansel Adams earned his fame on his Yosemite photos. It would be great to see an exhibit of his work, especially juxtaposed with works by Georgia O'Keeffe. SFMOMA, the first museum on the West Coast featuring modern and contemporary art, was founded in 1935. The museum is located in San Francisco at 151 Third Street between Mission and Howard. The museum is closed on Wednesdays and open late on Thursdays.
