  95. Mystery Founder Just two days before his passing, it was announced that Donald and Doris Fisher would place future custodianship of their collection with the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art. Although he wanted his own museum to house his public legacy, local opposition to building it in a national park (Presidio) prevented this from happening. The Fisher partnership with SFMOMA now elevates the museum’s status to an elite class, rivaling some of the world’s best public collections, especially in modern and contemporary art
