It is a big year for visual arts in the Bay Area. After being shuttered for three years, the SFMOMA will reopen as the largest modern and contemporary art museum in the country. The Berkeley Art Museum and Pacific Film Archive has a new home in downtown Berkeley. And in Davis, the Manetti Shrem Museum is one of almost 10 new facilities set to open in the region. We'll discuss the openings and upcoming exhibits and we want to know -- what are you most excited about seeing this year? What draws you to an exhibit?
