The MoMA

New York City, NY | March 2020

MoMA is a place that fuels creativity, ignites minds, and provides inspiration. It’s home to extraordinary exhibitions and collection of modern and contemporary art. It’s often identified as one of the largest and most influential museums of modern art in the world.” – MoMA Site

I took a 4 day trip in March 2020 to visit a college friend who’d recently moved to Harlem. This city is something else! Equal parts exciting and intimidating. Normalize eating spaghetti at 4 am!! My favorite experiences were at the museums, including the MoMA and the MET. I was lucky enough to be there on the free first Friday.

I respect classical art so much. But modern art is the most relatable to me, and how I aspire my work to look.

“I know nothing with any certainty, but the sight of the stars makes me dream.” – Vincent Van Gogh

Here are some of my favorite pieces of art at the museum.

Gold Marilyn Monroe - Andy Warhol
Les Demoiselles D'Avignon - Pablo Picasso
Drowning Girl - Roy Lichtenstein
Woman on the High Plains - Dorothea Lange
Photography by Cindy Sherman
Academy - Cy Twombly
Campbells Soup Cans - Andy Warhol
I and the Village - Marc Chagall
The Persistence of Memory - Salvador Dalí
Fulang-Chang and I - Frida Kahlo
One: Number 31 - Jackson Pollock

Above all else, I was stoked to see Starry Night. I love this painting so much that I got it tattooed on my forearm last year.

Starry Night - Van Gogh
My tattoo - by Stevie Flowers

My friend worked during the nights, so I went by myself. There’s something so peaceful about exploring a museum alone; completely immersed in art from the most talented people in the world.

Up next: The MET.
