The San Jose Museum of Art consists of an historic Richardsonian Romanesque structure coupled with a contemporary annex designed by Skidmore Owings & Merrill. The goal of this system was to unify the two wings, each of which faced perpendicular streets, and reinforce the modern theme of the museum. This was largely achieved through use of material and the mimicking of architectural themes. Interior signs were constructed of steel with removable aluminum panels. Facility information was screen-printed, collection information was applied vinyl graphics. Exterior signs consist of water-cut steel, screen-printed canvas banners, and applied vinyls.
