Digital Engagement Programs in the Photography Interpretive Center

Endowment funding for a new Photography Interpretive Center (PIC).

The San Francisco Museum of Modern Art is dedicated to making the art for our time a vital and meaningful part of public life. Currently undergoing a major building expansion, the museum will reopen in mid-2016 with not only an additional 100,000 square feet of gallery and public space but also a completely transformed visitor experience. A key component of the expanded building will be the new Photography Interpretive Center (PIC), which will offer visitors engaging experiences that allow them to better understand the complex processes and artistic choices that go into the creation of a photograph. Endowed funds from an NEH Challenge Grant will fund the most essential operating costs of the PIC: software/hardware and supplies for the ongoing maintenance and refinement of rotating digital interpretive exhibits and a pro-rated share of salaries and benefits for the staff who contribute most heavily to the PIC.
