An afternoon at the MOMA

In between business meetings this past Friday, my husband and I visited the MOMA in Manhattan. Surprisingly, they let us take pictures (no flash, of course). We spent about three hours at the multi-level museum and really had a great time snapping this and that. I tended to take photos of my favorite paintings and Shawn (as usual) just shot EVERYTHING :)

My most favorite painting in the world lives at this museum: Van Gogh's Starry Night. Though I was disappointed to learn that Salvador Dali's "Persistence of Memory" was out on loan. Alas, I must wait until the summer to go back and see it (unless I go to London first... hmmm...). Admittedly, some of the installations at the museum are just whacked (in my opinion) but I was surprised to see so many spectacular pieces in their collection, including Warhol's serigraphs of Marilyn Monroe.

Needless to say, we only covered two floors in three hours, so we're set to go back really soon. If it's warm enough, we'll ride our motorcycles :)
