SFO Museum Photography Exhibitions
SFO Museum is proud to collaborate with the team at Photo Alliance, an organization that has been of great importance to the Bay Area photography community for the past fifteen years. We are excited to expand our 2018 programming to include an exhibition of works selected by the jurors, and look forward to sharing the work with the broad audience at the San Francisco International Airport.
- Kai Caemmerer, Curator of Photography, SFO Museum
SFO Museum dedicates galleries throughout the Airport to the exhibition of photographic works. The Museum has regularly exhibited photography for the past thirty years. SFO Museum seeks to engage visitors in the work of local, national, and international artists through exhibitions that reflect the diversity of the Bay Area’s arts community, while helping visitors understand the significance of the region in both the origins and evolution of the photographic medium.
