Free Admission to SFMOMA for all Students, Staff, Faculty through January 2023

July 21, 2022

We’re thrilled to share that SFMOMA (San Francisco Museum of Modern Art) will be offering free museum admission to our employees and students during the run of the upcoming exhibition, Diego Rivera’s America. UC Berkeley’s classic Rivera fresco painting ‘Still Life and Blossoming Almond Trees’ is included as part of this showcase. 

Diego Rivera's America

July 16, 2022 – January 2, 2023

The most in-depth examination of the artist’s work in over two decades, Diego Rivera’s America brings together more than 150 of Rivera’s paintings, frescoes, and drawings - as well as three galleries devoted to large-scale film projections of highly influential murals he created in Mexico and the United States. Rather than surveying his entire career, the exhibition focuses on Rivera’s work from the 1920s to the mid-1940s, when he was conceiving a new vision for North America informed by his travels in Mexico and the U.S.

Ten thematic galleries are dedicated to places like Tehuantepec and Manhattan 

that captured his imagination, and to his favorite subjects, such as street markets, popular celebrations, and images of labor and industry.

The free access offer is only redeemable onsite for individual employees and students with Cal 1 Cards (your UC Berkeley ID), plus one guest – throughout the course of the exhibition. Access to Diego Rivera's America is subject to capacity and availability.

We hope you are able to take advantage of this opportunity!
