The Museum of Modern Art (MoMA)

Great selection of exhibits for a reasonable price. For those who don't like art in a traditional sense this is a good choice. There are a number of interactive exhibits and a large selection of pieces created out of ordinary household objects. The fun thing about modern art for me is trying to understand why a certain piece is of significance when I easily could have created it myself. haha. There was one large painting for instance that was literally a canvas painted blue. Apparently the shade of the paint was of importance. Who knew. The other fun thing about MoMA is that pieces run the gamut of the art world as far as variety goes. Here you will find a wide range of photography, painting, sculpture, drawing, video, projection, etc... Essentially everything you can think of. Van Gogh's Starry Night is also located here and not in the Van Gogh Museum in Amsterdam. Give yourself at least 3 hours here. We were in a hurry and had slightly over an hour which was not nearly enough to see/soak everything in.
