Spark

The Fisher Collection

In October 2009, the production model of Spark changed, moving from a stand alone series of original programs to the production of Spark segments, which will be premiered throughout the year as part of the television show, This Week in Northern California.

In this segment, Spark gets a sneak peek at the masterworks as the exhibition From Calder to Warhol: Introducing the Fisher Collection at SFMOMA. The show presents 160 of the more than 1000 pieces from Don and Doris Fisher collection, long considered one of the finest in private hands. Part of SFMOMA's celebration of its 75th anniversary, the exhibition runs until September 19, 2010.

This Week Produced by Spark for This Week in Northern California.

[Original air date: Fri, Jun 25, 2010]

This program is not currently scheduled for broadcast.
