Wifi at the Met [26 Mar 2008|03:26pm]

I've been visiting the Met for months now, and it seems that they finally (re?)activated their free wifi service to museum patrons. I'm actually writing this in the Greek Gallery, sitting among all the sculptures.

I must say, this is how public museum should be.

Tara Donovan Exhibit [13 Feb 2008|07:52pm]

The Tara Donovan installation in the modern art section just opened a couple of weeks/ a month ago @ the Met. Everyone should definitelly check it out! It takes up an entire room and is incredibly beautiful in its simplicity.

I'll try to ask this question in the clearest way possible.

On December 19th, my art class came to the MoMA and I was especially taken by the photography (my favorite art form). There was ONE PHOTOGRAPHER, though, that I really liked but for some reason I didn't take his name down. His pictures were mostly of people from the 1920s/30s/40s (I would say 30s) on the train...sort of unaware that he was taking the pictures. My favorite was of a teenage boy in a cap. Do you know this photographer?

If not, is there a list other than the useless one for me on the MoMA site of all of hte current photographers on display?

thankyou very much

Dude, this community needs some serious advertisement and promotions. I'm going to make some banners now and send them to you via email, since my AIM is screwed up. We need more people! :)

First Day as Community! [15 Oct 2005|04:47pm]

Welcome to The Museum of Modern Art and The Metropolitan Museum of Art as well as P.S.1 Contemporary Art Center Community. Although this particular lj-community is not run by moderators of these three actual museums this community was made just to keep you updated with recent exhibits at MoMA and The Metropolitan, also called "The Met" along with reminders of events at the P.S.1 Contemporary Art Center in Long Island City (preferably)
This site is also open for discussion about any exhibits at these three museums so we can broaden our opinions about the art we see.
I've been wanting to open this community for quite some time now, since when i first joined LiveJournal there was no Met or MoMA community, and i've pretty much lived at the MoMA and the Metropolitan ^^; i just recently got affiliated with P.S.1 MoMA during my internship this summer there. Well anywhosel,now that this community is officially up and running, lets make the best of this community as artists and as people.<3
Here are the small small small small rules:
1. Please, if you are placing an image, put it under an lj cut =)
2. feel free to express your opinions-just dont be a bully.
3. have fun.hee hee ^^;
all posts relating to other museums and your own personal artwork is acceptable! Also open discussions about contemporary and classic artists are great.
Enjoy your stay at MoMA_theMet community
Love your moderator,
(and her techie advisor Natasha)
