Fw: Holidays at MoMA: Four of Six Highlights

I'd decided I wouldn't do these cheap posts where I simply forward an e-mail from my inbox..but this one seemed like it's worth posting.  The 4th of 6 "holiday highlights" e-mails that MoMA has sent.  

We sprung for a membership to MoMA in November, which might be the best $125 we've spent since coming to NYC.  I feel like we've already got our money's worth, with about 4 visits to the museum, plus a couple movies (both of which included the filmmaker speaking: Nina Paley taking questions after "Sita Sings the Blues"; and the man, the myth, the legend Melvin van Peebles introducing his very first feature film, The Story of Three Day Pass!)

We walked through the Miro exhibit featured below in November.  Actually, I walked through twice, once with Anj and then again with a friend who was in town visiting from SF--and who is an artist and counts Miro among his influences, so it was informative and eye-opening to walk through with him..

More on MoMA in the future--I had been thinking it would be fun to write up my own idiosyncratic guide to visiting MoMA..
