You would think that after the Wall Street
crash of 1929 that New Work would have came to a standstill and all activity quashed but try telling that to the Museum of Modern Art which opened 9 days later. Since then the MoMA has been dedicated to educating, inspiring and wowing all its visiors with the latest works of modern and contemporary art.
It is the foremost museum of modern art in the world and attracts all visitors of minds young and old. The collections include works from known artists such as Picasso, Monet, Kandinsky, Rosseau, Klimt, Stella and VanGogh. Everything is well laid out, there are superb friendly staff and most notably the entire museum is so....neat! The museum itself is an actual work of art with its fabulous architecture that makes the most of open light and connects space with glass enclosed stairways and sliding doors.
Many of the museums around New York are known for being big, beautiful, historic an even bizarre but the MoMA combines all of these and it is a museum that captivates everyone. It is part of the wonder of the Big Apple that combines the past and the present, the experimental and the established and the beautiful and disturbing.
It is and astounding place to be and will always provoke reaction especially the beauty of VanGoghs Starry Night that will exhilarate and intrigue you. There is also a floor display of sweets and folded towels and honestly it is a great way to stay updated with the latest in the art world.
