The Museum of Modern Art (MoMA), New York.
New York > Midtown
The Museum of Modern Art seeks to create a dialogue between the established and the experimental, the past and the present, in an environment that is responsive to the issues of modern and contemporary art, while being accessible to a public that ranges from scholars to young children. MOMA actively establishes, preserves, and documents a permanent collection of the highest order that reflects the vitality, complexity of modern and contemporary art. MoMA exhibitions and educational programs are some of the best in the industry, and their library, archives, and conservation laboratory are considered international centers of research.
The recently completed expansion project (2002 - 2006) represents MOMA's most extensive redefinition since its founding seventy-five years ago. The Museum combines new spaces (spacious skylight galleries, an expanded lobby complete with new theaters and a new restaurant in the Rockefeller sculpture garden among others) with the museum's original architecture.
