Bloomberg Businessweek Design 2016: Benezra & Dykers
A Bay Area native, Neal Benezra became the Helen and Charles Schwab director of the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art in 2002. Under his leadership, SFMOMA has enjoyed a period of unprecedented growth, including a physical expansion of the museum—designed by Snøhetta—and an extensive enhancement of its programs, collections, and education services. Benezra is also overseeing an ambitious collections campaign—the Campaign for Art—which has garnered nearly 3,000 works by artists such as Francis Bacon, Jackson Pollock, and many others. Since 1989, Craig Dykers has established offices in Norway, Egypt, England, and the U.S. His interest in using design to promote social and physical well-being is supported by ongoing observation and development of an innovative design process.
