Spend an Artistic Day at MoMA

Spend an Artistic Day at MoMA

Channel your inner artist and spend a day at the Museum of Modern Art (MoMA). Join the crowds surrounding Edvard Munch’s “The Scream” and Vincent van Gogh’s “The Starry Night” in the Painting and Sculpture I department, stand in line for a viewing of Christian Marclay’s The Clock or climb to the top floor of the museum for the Special Exhibitions department. After a long day of looking at art, dine in one of the museum’s cafes or at Michelin-starred, French-American restaurant The Modern and browse through museum souvenirs at the MoMA Design and Book Store.

Last week, when I visited MoMA, I found that Inventing Abstraction, 1910-1925 was my new favorite exhibit. Part of the Special Exhibitions department, the show will be open until April 15th. It showcases the first abstract artists and their creative paintings, drawings and sculptures, as well as a few stained glass and needlepoint pieces. Famous artists including Pablo Picasso, Piet Mondrian and Georgia O’Keefe are featured in the show along with a map of abstract artists charting their relationships and influences. Plan your visit to MoMA at moma.org.
