My Visit to MoMa in NYC

     Looking at a famous piece of art in person is such a different experience than looking at it through a picture. This realization came to life at the Museum of Modern Art (MoMa).
Below are pictures my brother took of my sister and I at the MoMa. Enjoy!!
Please excuse the quality of the pictures they were taken with an ipod. Always remember to check that the SIM card is in your camera before you go anywhere.:P

I wish I could include all of Picasso's famous works, but I couldn't because there was a private collection. You can view it here http://www.moma.org/interactives/exhibitions/2011/picassoguitars/featured-works/index.php
 Head of a Man with a Moustache
The link above will take you to a mixed media drawing from Picasso's private collection at the MoMa. I observed the drawing and found that when you first glance at it, you will think anyone can do it. Once I observed it for a longer period, I found out that he included the words and lines from the newspaper into his work. I thought that was brilliant. One of my favorite pieces of art. I saw the beauty of his work with this drawing.
