The Museum of Modern Art is the central institution of New York City’s art world. The energy of the museum is captured in the millions of visitors, just as much as it is in its vast and awe-inspiring collection. A leader in developing and collecting modernist art, it’s often pointed to as the single most influential museum in the modern art world. MoMA’s holdings include more than 150,000 pieces of art, in addition to 22,000 films and 4 million film stills. Some of its most famous works include The Starry Night by Van Gogh, Water Lilies by Monet, and Number 31 by Jackson Pollock. The museum also boasts the world’s first curatorial department dedicate to architecture and design. The collection consists of 28,000 works, ranging from blueprints and works on paper to large scale models, appliances, and sports cars.
In the early 2000s, the museum underwent an extensive renovation, designed by Japaneses architect Yoshio Taniguchi. The remodeling doubled the space for the museum’s exhibitions and programs, optimized the building’s use of natural light, and expanded its beloved sculpture garden.
