Let's go to MoMA

MoMA is one of the most poplular museums in NYC, but for some odd reason we have not visited for quite some time. That changes now. This is the perfect museum to engage your understanding and experience with art. Ranging from things easily understood with a clear statement from the artist to the things that make you scratch your head and go, "Huh?" (but hopefully with a gradually dawning understanding to follow with time). So whether you have an enlightening experience or just end up seeing some funny looking stuff to make a few jokes about, come out to MoMA with us and you'll have someone to share either with.

Just another reason why a trip to MoMA is such a great idea this particular day- it's free! Yep, thanks to Target Free Friday Nights, admission to MoMA is free from 4pm to 8pm every Friday night. You can't beat that with a stick.

Something from the Museum's website:

The Museum of Modern Art is a place that fuels creativity, ignites minds, and provides inspiration. With extraorinary exhibitions and the world's finest collection of modern and contemporary art, MoMa is dedicated to the conversation between the past and the present, the established and the experimental. Our mission is helping you to understand and enjoy the art of our time.

    To all the folks that got there late and couldn't find us, I apologize. I was answering texts and phone calls all the way up until we were eating afterward, but I never looked at the comments here on the page. I hope you were still able to enjoy the museum and that I'll have another opportunity to meet you soon.

    I enjoyed the museum a lot, even more so than on past visits. The people that came out tonight were great. Dinner and then drinks afterward was a great time to get to know some new people.

    Hi Kim, Shawn mentioned that the group would
    reconvene at that entrance around 8 so if you
    want to wait there, you'll probably see some
    people.

    So we'll be meeting at 6:00pm on the corner of W. 53rd Street and 5th Avenue, right next to the the Saint Thomas Episcopal Church. That will make it easier to recognize the group and it's half a block from there to the MoMA entrance. I'll be trying to get there a few minutes early, just to make sure everything goes smoothly

    Hello, I have the same question as Syed. Where is everyone meeting up at?

    September 30, 2012

    • Shawn

      Hey Guys, we'll be meeting at the corner of W. 35th Street and 5th Avenue. It's a very short walk from there to the museum, and will make it easier for people to spot who is with the group.

      October 2, 2012

    • Shawn

      Ill send my contact info out in an email the night before. You can call or text me and I'll help you find us.

    Shawn,

    You wrote that we'll meet at 35th and Fifth. But before we were supposed to meet at 53rd and Fifth. Can I assume a typing error?

    October 2, 2012

    • Shawn

      Thanks for catching that. Yes, I meant 53rd and 5th. It definitely wouldn't be such a. Short walk from 35th.
