On January 18, 2010, SFMOMA will celebrate its 75th anniversary. As a kick off, the museum will open The Anniversary Show this Saturday, December 19, 2009. Highlighting 400 works from the collection, the exhibition reminds of some of the key moments in SFMOMA’s history. Particular attention is paid to the museums connection to art history itself, with work by Jackson Pollock (Gardens of the Secret, 1943, is shown above) mingling with Frida Kahlo, Jeff Koons, and Barry McGee.

In total the show celebrates the collecting history of the institution, which has been impressive since the 1935 founding.

The exhibition closes on January 16, 2011.
