My Favorite Art From The MoMA in New York City

Oh boy. I’ve probably been to over twenty museums in my life. Some of them stand out to me: The Polin Museum in Warsaw, the Folon Foundation in the countryside of Belgium, the Musée Magritte in Brussels. When I visited these museums, I knew that they would be the ones to stick with me. That same thing happened to me yesterday at the Museum of Modern Art in New York City. More specifically, level five.

Besides hosting some of my favorite artists, including René Magritte and Henri Matisse, I had my first look at new artists. Some of these stood out to me so much that I wrote their names down and then researched them when I got back to my AirBnB. I will probably write about them in the future.

Since many of you are not in or around New York, or even in The States, I thought I’d give you an inside look to the MoMA, which I have decided is my all time favorite museum. I’ll group them by artists.

These were my all-time favorite paintings, but I really could go on and on. As I plan to travel to more cities in the United States, there are specific museums that I want to visit. These include:

  • The Art Institute of Chicago
  • The Smithsonian Institute of Washington, D.C.
  • Asian Art Museum of San Francisco
  • NASA Kennedy Space Center
  • California Academy of Sciences

I’ll try to get through all of them in the next two years!
