To MoMA, for Design and Art

To MoMA, for Design and Art

As has been our custom over the past few years, we headed to Manhattan on New Year’s morning, for a little sightseeing and lunch.

This year, we added the Museum of Modern Art to our itinerary. Greg was interested in an exhibit on modern furniture design (of course!) and we all wanted to see some of the permanent collection.

You may have noticed that activity card in the photos above. It was great for Sam to have artwork to look for, and then once she found it, the card asked questions and gave her an opportunity to create, too.lj010117moma16 lj010117moma17  lj010117moma19
