Trilby's Svengali was a character of fiction. Conversely, Marc Breed, has captivated a generation with such a unique and engaging personality that we've allowed him the ultimately luxury of a true freedom. The Art he has created, as a result of this, only seems odd; in that we view it while tinged with envy. That we in Cleveland possess such a close-up look, should be a source of extreme pride. For we may live vicariously through his artistic rampage among us.

And I'm not really into museums and I like this place!

Even though I have the attention span of a 2 year old, I see why this place is so great. The building itself is a piece of art, the art housed itself is the stuff I was tested on in my art history class at the community college in San Diego, so many years ago, and some of the art work, I even like and want to look at for more than 2 minutes!

That said, you have to come and check it out at least once so that you can say you've done it. Even if you are like me and have no idea what you are supposed to be appreciating you have to try it before you say you don't like it or know it and the what not. Right?

Plus the gift shop is pretty freakin' cool. And it's only $11 to get in which is surely worth walking through 4 stories of artwork, after all you are bound to find at least a few things that catch your fancy, I know I did.

Great Museum!

I went to see the Frida Kahlo exhibit and was surprised to find such an amazing permanent collection of contemporary Chinese art! The Kahlo exhibit was moving and powerful. I went later in the day and was surprised to find that the last half hour, at 5:15, they let you in for free! I will be a frequent visitor to this museum.

Oh, it's okay

The Rothko is impressive but the permanent collection suffers from lack of depth- ONE minor Pollock, ONE Brancusi, two (?) Matisse, etc. etc. Dare I say too much photography? What's the deal with all the fuzzy Daguerotypes? Far too many TV-monitor-in-a-dark-room with dissonant audio
type exhibitions. The visiting exhibits can be very good.

Great Art for the Masses

SFMOMA is always changing; the permanent collection and the traveling exhibitions are rotated to make every visit to the museum unique and fun, even if the visitor has been there many times. Great deal!

Not enough time in one day

Beautiful architecture, fantastic displays; make sure to go on free Tuesdays, first one every month, but go early to get in right away. You still won't have enough time.

SFMOMA stinks

Why are tickets to this museum so expensive? $10 for a museum this small? I'm annoyed that my home town (SF) doesn't have a good museum to compare with other cosmopolitan cities such as NYC. I know some people out there are going to say ""well that's a modern art museum compared to a traditional exhibit museum"". Well, I don't care. Sorry. I'm no art conniseur. I just call 'em as I see 'em. You have to go to several SF museums to see all the art. SF-Moma, POLO, GGPark... Compared to the Metropolitan Museum of Art in NYC, the SF MOMA is lacking. Oh well. At least we get better weather.

Amidst all the hue and cry about the demise of San Francisco's arts scene, this museum rose like phoenix, gracing the self-touted world-class city with its first world class museum. The early days of the museum were somewhat mixed as the currators tended to hang on to the audience be damned early '90s credo of the art world. Through time, however, the museum has become much more embrasive, while still featuring cutting edge work along with stalwarts of the modern genre.
