The Fine Arts Museums of San Francisco is an open, accessible, and vital contributor to the cultural life of San Francisco.

Over his thirty-year career, Campbell has worked towards the preservation, study and promotion of art as a gateway to human understanding.
The Director’s Cut series, anchored by MAP’s Director, Kamini Sawhney, offers a glimpse into how the institution of the museum is being reimagined and reinvented today and presents a unique opportunity to hear from reputed practitioners in museums around the world as they reflect on their institutional experiences, behind-the-scenes challenges, unique initiatives, and more.
