The Museum of Modern Art (MoMA) is my absolute favorite museum in NYC. I love the mix of classic and sometimes bizarre works that dot the walls of its airy six stories.
Tucked away on a bustling midtown street, MoMA may be smaller than the Met, but I've spent so many more hours there "discovering" things I've seen in books. Makes for a pretty fun way to spend an wintry afternoon...
In addition to MOMA's permanent collection, the museum always has really rad exhibits. Last year, S and I caught the Tim Burton show and this week my Mom and I checked out de Kooning: A Retrospective. If you are in NYC, do yourself a favor and stop by. Take your time wandering through the numerous rooms and be sure to listen to the accompanying audio.
Here are a few of my most fave de Kooning works we viewed.
