Art Collector Donald Fisher Restores San Francisco Presidio Museum Plans
Donald Fisher, the billionaire Gap Inc. founder who wants to build a museum for his contemporary-art collection in San Francisco’s Presidio national park, agreed to revamp his project and move it to a less prominent site.
The Fishers started collecting modern and contemporary art more than 30 years ago.
Doris and Donald, who together founded Gap, Inc., in 1969, have cultivated a life-long passion for modern and contemporary art. The family privately displays much of their collection at the Gap headquarters in San Francisco.
Occasionally some of the art is displayed at the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, where Mr. Fisher serves as an officer on the board of trustees.
Fisher and his wife, Doris, own an important collection of more than 1,000 works of contemporary art. [from bloomberg]
