The San Francisco Museum of Modern Art (SF MOMA) opened its doors to the public on May 14, after a three-year-long renovation. The new building designed by the architecture firm Snøhetta now provides 10 stories of art for everyone to enjoy, including film, photography, and contemporary, abstract, and modern works. The MOMA is the biggest art museum in the Bay Area; it carries art pieces from artists that visitors from around the world will enjoy, from Andy Warhol and Roy Lichtenstein, to Pablo Picasso and Diego Rivera.

Hello, my name is Ulises Cisneros and I am a senior at M-A! This will be my second year on staff and my first year as a copy editor. Aside from hoping to improve my writing skills, my main goal is to bring a fresh perspective into issues surrounding M-A by serving as a voice for the least represented and highlighting the positive efforts occurring in my community. I truly believe in the power of journalism and consider it one of the biggest tools society has in order to change the issues that occur in our world. Outside of journalism class, I enjoy playing soccer, listening to music, and hanging out with friends.
