For the past 50 years, Bay Area art collectors Harry and Mary Margaret Anderson have passionately assembled one of the most outstanding private collections of 20th-century art in the world. They have also demonstrated extraordinary generosity; in 1992 they donated a group of 30 works by Claes Oldenburg, Andy Warhol, and other Pop Art pioneers to SFMOMA, and they gave 121 works to Stanford, all of which go on display this fall in The Anderson Collection, a new building adjacent to the Cantor. To celebrate its new neighbor, the Cantor presents an exhibition of 10 spectacular Pop Art works originally part of the Andersons’ donation to SFMOMA. Works include a silkscreen self-portrait by Andy Warhol; a “mirror” series sculpture and two other major works by Roy Lichtenstein; Funeral Heart by Claes Oldenburg; Robert Indiana’s iconic Love painting; and important paintings by Jim Dine, Jasper Johns, Robert Rauschenberg, and James Rosenquist.
Open Wed-Sun 11am - 5pm, Thursdays until 8pm; admission is free. CLOSED MONDAY AND TUESDAY. After September 21 closed Monday.
