The San Francisco Museum of Modern Art announced today that it will open the doors to its new building on May 14, 2016. Museum officials gave press members a sneak peek today, and it was the first opportunity to marvel at the stunning design statement by Snøhetta, a Norwegian architecture firm. A Curbed team was there for the hard-hat tour, and we'll bring you full coverage shortly. In the meantime, here's a look at some photos making the rounds on Instagram.
