The San Francisco Bay Area has been without its modern art institution for a couple of years now, as the physical space that is the SFMOMA has been closed for an addition to its existing building. The benefits of the closure has been spread out across various spaces around the SF area, whether at the Cantor at Stanford, the Wattis in SF, or even the Asian Art Museum here in the City as well. All the shows have been strong in their own way, but the newest SFMOMA On the Go exhibition, "Fertile Ground," brings together SFMOMA and the Oakland Museum of California for a theme that makes perfect: Art made in the SF Bay Area.

Something to very much look forward to: on April 14, 2012, the Oakland Museum of California will open Modern Cartoonist: The Art of Daniel Clowes, featuring the work of the internationally renowned comic, graphic novelist and writer. And if you can't make it out to Oakland, may we suggest picking up a copy (we just got one ourselves) of the Abrams book, Modern Cartoonist: The Art of Daniel Clowes. Same name. Makes it easier.
