A few more images from the MoMA.

The fluxus wallpaper (above) is by George Maciunas and Yoko Ono. The repeated image is of someone's bum, a still from Ono’s Film Number 4 (Bottoms). It covers an entire wall, from floor to ceiling. More on this unusual piece here, if you're interested. Oh, Yoko.


Although we had seen an entire exhibit dedicated to Picasso's work only a few weeks prior to visiting the MoMA, it never gets tired. We feel so incredibly fortunate to have had the opportunity to see so many great works of art in person during our travels.


An amusing note about the characters in the above photo: Another (elderly) museum patron approached these two and started chatting with them. They seemed very perplexed as to why someone randomly chose to strike up a conversation with them but politely kept talking to him. Then the gentleman started asking them about the significance of their costumes and they realized that he thought that they were part of the exhibit. They explained that they were not and everyone parted ways looking quite embarrassed - the wonders of modern art.

  1. That's such a finny story :-) I wish I had the guts to just wear a hat like that for no reason other than a trip to the museum. People like that inspire me and make me want to be more adventurous!
