I went to MOMA with my friends last week (April.22). MOMA is very famous, my American friends always mention and recommend this place to me, so I went to MOMA with them. This is my first time to visit this wonderful museum, and I had a great time. MOMA is located in New York City. It is located at fifty-third Street (between fifth and Sixth Avenue), and it is one of the world’s most important contemporary art museum. The museum was originally designed to display paintings, but later it expanded the scope of the exhibition, including sculpture, printmaking, photography, printing, commercial design, film, architecture, furniture and installation art and other projects. Now the number of works of art has reached more than 150 thousand.
I very appreciated a masterpiece of Andy Warhol. I think he maybe was one of the fans of Monroe. Monroe had just died when he created the painting. He finished the work in honor of the goddess. The creation of the golden landscape under the use of screen technology can let us feel a lot of black spots. At the same time, the world has lost its luster. He created a sexy goddess.
There were a lot of magnificent masterpieces in the museum. I also learned a lot from these wonderful works. I could not totally understand some of them, but they still impressed me. I will come back to MOMA again in the future to truly understand these works. In one word, this museum is very worth to visit, it will refresh your minds and release your stress.
