The San Francisco Museum of Modern Art has recently become a place of interest for many teenagers and young adults. Many of them come to see and take selfies with Dan Flavin’s light exhibits. These pieces are lit up in different colors and shapes.  Search for #Flavin on Instagram, and you’ll see why they are so popular with the young crowd.

The museum itself houses many works of twentieth century art, including architecture, design, media arts, paintings, photos, and sculptures. Some of pieces are quite famous, such as Diego Rivera’s “The Flower Carrier,” Marcel Duchamp’s “Fountain,” and Robert Smithson’s “Nonsite.”

All of the art is sure to strike some sort of feeling with visitors. Whether it be chills because of the giant spiders or hunger due to the life-size apple core, people who walk through the galleries are sure to get an interesting experience.

With the open, enthralling, and aesthetically pleasing aura within the walls of this museum, it is a great place to visit with friends, family, or even by yourself. You would be surprised how captivating art can be at just a glance, and how deeply it can resonate with so many people.

The museum is free for visitors aged 18 and younger and is open Friday to Tuesday from 10am-5pm, Thursdays from 10am-9pm, and closed on Wednesdays.  For more information, visit
