#FairmontMoments with @travelmindset #sponsored • Fairmont took me on a special tour of the expanded @sfmoma that reopened in May 2016 yesterday during which we visited the Matisse/Diebenkorn & Diane Arbus exhibits. I couldn't have come up with a better way to spend a rainy day in San Francisco if I'd tried, my inspiration seemed to quadruple with every new floor we visited! Especially after I found out that SFMOMA was one of the first museums to recognize photography as a fine art! I felt compelled by all I saw, to try to create my own "art" and this video was born out of that compulsion. It depicts the soaring central entrance way you find when you come from Third Street with the 'Untitled' piece created by Alexander Calder in 1963 that slowly moves beneath the oculus under a pedestrian bridge. As wonderfully thrilling as the exhibits were for someone like me for whom art has been a lifelong interest -- especially the Matisse/Diebenkorn rooms & the Cloud Cities room by @studiotomassaraceno -- it was the architecture of the building itself that left the most lasting impression, making me want to return. Closed for three years to expand the original Maria Botta-designed building with renowned architecture firm @snohetta, upon reopening SFMOMA became one of the largest museums in the USA and one of the largest in the world for modern & contemporary art. It's also now on track for LEED Gold Certification and features the largest application of composites technology to architecture in the USA. There's a connection to @fairmontsanfrancisco too. During the 1940's meetings that led to the signing of the United Nations Charter, SFMOMA was forced to temporarily move from its original Van Ness location to make way for the UN Conference on International Organization but many of the closed door meetings took place back at the Fairmont where b&w photos of those meetings now line the halls! ⚪️🔲⚫️
