Visiting MoMA in New York City
One of my favorite museums in New York City has to be the Museum of Modern Art or MoMA. I have visited the MoMa a few times now and I wanted to share some pictures from my trip a few years ago. Located at:
11 West 53 Street, New York, NY 10019-5497, it is in Midtown Manhattan. You can easily spend an entire day here. It has some of the most iconic modern art pieces in the country. Here is a highlight of some of my favorites.
Double Elvis, Andy Warhol, 1962
The Starry Night, Vincent van Gogh, 1889
The Park, Gustav Klimt, 1910
The Three Musicians, Pablo Piccaso, 1921
Panel for Edwin R. Campbell No. 1, 2, 3, 4
Agapanthus, Claude Monet, 1914-1926
Broadway Boogie Woogie, Piet Mondrian, 1942-43
“Maxi” set including Tripp Trapp Chair, Peter Opsvik, 1972
Moonbird, Joan Miro, 1966
Alberto Giacometti Tall Figure III, Alberto Giacometti, 1960
Hug, Alberto Mantilla, 2002
The most important piece for me was this… it is called Hug and was designed by my cousin’s husband Alberto Mantilla. It has become an iconic piece of modern art exhibited in the Useful Objects area of the museum. It is a salt and pepper shaker and I was thrilled to see it both in the MoMA store and on posters at bus stops. I have a pair which he gave to me when it was first designed.
