Whether you live here or visiting the city, there’s always something to do in New York City. One of our favorite things to do is to spend the day at MoMA. MoMA currently has two locations but we recommend spending the day at the Manhattan location. The museum is open 7 days a week from 10:30 - 5:30 and extended hours on Friday and the first Thursday of each month until 9:00pm. Also they have a UNIQLO Free Friday Nights from 5:30 - 9:00pm for free admission.
The MoMA contains almost 200,000 works of modern and contemporary art. Every time we visit, there’s something new to see and enjoy. They offer art exhibits from past and contemporary artists to watching performances and films to making art too. There’s always something for everyone from adults to children. And you’re free to leave and reenter all day with your admission ticket.
There are two current exhibits that are happening at MoMA. We spent some time enjoying these two exhibits recently:
Taking a Thread for a Walk
Floor 3, 3 North in the Philip Johnson Galleries
This exhibition takes you through some of the historic moments where fashion and styles were evolutionized. From displays of ancient textile traditions, to early 1920’s design reform movements and industrial materials and production methods. These inspirational artwork pieces show how different patterns and forms of fabric can become something new.
Collection 1940s -1970s
There are a total of 23 galleries on this floor. There isn’t a particular time order but each collection has its own topic whether it highlights a specific artist to different moments in time revealing most notable artwork and displays. In addition, each artwork shows a variety of methods of how the artwork was created during these times.
