The Contemporary Jewish Museum has moved its art, film, and music exhibitions to a new building at a different location in San Francisco. The lavish 63,000-square-foot structure designed by Daniel Libeskind promises to serve as an even better space to "create a perspective on Jewish life in the 21st-century," fulfilling the museum's purpose.

The official ribbon-cutting happens on Sunday. Be sure to look for the exhibition of cartoons by William Steig, who is renowned for inventing the lovable green giant Shrek.

Contemporary Jewish Museum, doors open at 11 a.m.; admission is free (ordinarily $10). 736 Mission Street, San Francisco. thecjm.org
