According to a report in the San Francisco Chronicle, SFMOMA has laid off eleven staffers, but those in the know say the damage is much worse. Thirteen people were laid-off, six forced to go part-time, and at least twenty-five empty positions were cut. Insiders think the cuts equal about 20% of the staff, rather than 4% as reported. They also say that despite the public story that cuts were made equally across all areas, certain departments were targeted. Educational Technologies and Digital Imaging were wiped out completely.
