Daytripper: Museum of Modern Art

New York’s Museum of Modern Art (MoMA) houses what many consider to be the finest collection of modern and contemporary art in the world. The renovations at the MoMA are its most extensive since the museum’s founding over 75 years ago. Architect Yoshio Taniguchi has created a dazzling new space that combines with MoMA’s original architecture to dramatically enhance its dynamic collection of art and "transform MoMA into a bold new museum while maintaining its historical, cultural, and social context," said Taniguchi at the museum’s opening. Opening in 1929 with a gift of eight prints and one drawing, MoMA’s collection has expanded extensively to include 150,000 paintings, drawings, sculptures, photographs, and models, along with thousands of films, videos, and multimedia works. The collection is split into six departments: Architecture and Design, Drawings, Film and Media, Paintings and Sculpture, Photography, and Prints and Illustrated Books. The highlights of each department are simply too extensive to list, but several can be viewed at www.moma.org/collection. The museum assures that its collections are displayed in rotating installations, so each visit can potentially display new works to the public. And for film buffs, programs of classic and contemporary films are interspersed with retrospectives of influential filmmakers and works of independent and experimental film.


The Museum of Modern Art is focused on its role to provide educational programs and activities for young museumgoers. Each week specially designed activities for parents and children, as well as for teachers and students, aid in the understanding and appreciation of the world of modern art. Its website, Destination Modern Art www.moma.org/destination, is specifically designed for children ages 5-8, which is interactive and a great prep for a visit to the museum. A site for teens, www.redstudio.moma.org, explores modern art through artist interviews, issues raised by modern art, upcoming programs, events for teens, and interactive features.


MoMA also features three eateries onsite, which offer a range of casual and fine dining, the MoMA Design Store, thousands of books, posters, and other objects related to modern art. The museum is closed on Tuesdays. Other relevant information, such as ticketing, parking, group services, and special needs offerings are all available on its website at www.moma.org.
