195 promised gifts and plans for 2016 building expansion

Growth had originally been designed around the museum's 75th anniversary in 2010, but the ball got rolling and the bar raised.

The museum is well on its way to funding an expansion with $250 million committed to the $480 million total budget, and Norwegian firm Snøhetta is at work on the design. Last year announcement came that the new space will feature the Doris and Donald Fisher Collection- 1,100 works by highly noted mid to late 20'th century figures, including Alexander Calder, Cy Twombly, Agnes Martin, Andy Warhol, Richard Serra and Chuck Close. In all nine families are setting the standard for growth. The new announcement of 195 more acquisitions to include heavy hitters- Jackson Pollosck, Francis Bacon, Yves Klein, Bruce Nauman and artists who's work has been featured in retrospectives at SFMOMA, including Richard Tuttle, Jeff Koons, Anselm Kiefer, Diane Arbus, Brice Marden, Matthew Barney, Olafur Eliasson and Eva Hesse. On the whole these big moves mark more than an institution's anniversary, they set the stage for the SFOMA as a growing figure in the modern art landscape.
