No, it’s not like the woman who gave birth to you.
It’s called MOMA , or officially known as The Museum of Modern Art.
In one of my recent posts, (sportsandtravelblog.wordpress.com/2017/08/26/start-spreading-the-news-new-york-city-new-york-the-metropolitan-museum -of – Art – Breuer ) , I stated that I wasn’t a big fan of Modern art, or at least what passes as modern art.
The Museum of Modern Art , which is located at 53rd Street between 5th and 6th Avenue, does really have modern art.
Or at least it’s modern art that you have some kind of clue what it’s supposed to be .
There are six floors to this museum , which is one of the most famous modern art museums in the country, if not the world.
It’s open every day from 10:30am until 5:30pm except Fridays when they stay open until 8:30pm .
The admission price is $25 but for seniors and students the prices are $18 and $14.
If you have children who are under the age of 16, guess what ?
They don’t pay a thing to visit this museum .
Before you enjoy the paintings and photographs and what not on the other floors, just relax among the sculptures that are located in the Abby Aldrich Rockefeller Sculpture Garden , that’s on the ground floor .
You’ll see all sorts of Sculpture including works by Pablo Picasso called, “The Goat” and “The River”.
There’s even a sculpture that looks as though it were part of a scene in Paris.
It’s very comforting , and on a nice day, it’s just a nice place to unwind and enjoy the scenery around you.
Like a lot of museums in the city , don’t even think of whipping out that selfie stick.
It’s not allowed here and security will let you know that in no uncertain terms .
MOMA seems to have paintings from all the artists that many of you have heard of .
Besides Picasso , there are works by Frida Kahlo, Jackson Pollock, Henri Matisse , and what would a museum of modern art be without a few works by Andy Warhol and Salvador Dali ?
The jewel of this particular museum , though is located on the fifth floor .
It’s heavily guarded, not to mention that it’s the painting that EVERYONE wants to see and take a selfie with.
It’s Vincent Van Gogh’s famous painting , “The Starry Night”.
On the top floor of the museum, there was a special exhibit called “items: Is Fashion Modern ? ”
I would have to say yes, and I can really get to like this type of Modern Art .
