Art is cool. New York is cool. Checking out art in the Museum of Modern Art? Now you’re cool. MoMA is an art lover’s paradise, a place to soak up art in an elevated atmosphere. And if you’re not yet a lover of modern and contemporary art, this museum - filled with Van Goghs, Warhols and Picassos - might turn you into one.
MoMA provides a portal into the kinetic world of modernism and wonder in a range of different disciplines; you'll find architecture, photography, painting, sculpture, design, film and more. Located right in Midtown Manhattan, on 53rd street between 5th and 6th Avenue, MoMA is super easy to get to. And once you're there, you probably won't want to leave.
The highlight works are on the fourth and fifth floor, but there is so much more to explore - you'll find your curiosity and imagination inspired and challenged in all sections - including the sculpture garden, the ongoing film series, and regularly changing exhibitions.
MoMA was founded in 1929 by three influential women of the era – the impressively named Abby Aldrich Rockefeller, Lilly P. Bliss and Mary Quinn Sullivan. In its 87 years, the MoMA has endured fires, renovations and controversy - and emerged a true New Yorker. After all these years it’s still standing - and still pushing the boundaries of modern art – right down to its impressive libraries and restaurant The Modern.
Step off the subway and right into Vincent van Gogh’s The Starry Night, and just keep going from there.
