I thought I’d share some more photos from our MoMA visit on Sunday. Not to gush, but I really loved it there. What a breathe of fresh air to relax and observe these works. It made me happy to see so many young people, unaccompanied by parents, freely roaming the galleries gazing intently at their favorite painting or drawing. I recall as a young girl, art museums were mostly for the bon ton set. Not anymore. All you need is a ticket to enter and you can leave your attitude at the door, for arriving at a museum isn’t about what you can bring, it’s about what it will bring you. Enter with an open mind, and you’ll leave with an open heart.
“If art is to nourish the roots of our culture, society must set the artist free to follow his vision wherever it takes him.” – John F. Kennedy
