SAN FRANCISCO—Due to the current COVID-19 pandemic, the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art (SFMOMA) has been temporarily closed, and is offering the free online streaming service #MuseumFromHome on their website from September 2 to October 7. The selected videos are from the past decade, and they will rotate weekly.
