CoCo Takes Manhattan-Part III: MoMA

Fulang-Chang and I
Frida Kahlo


I had one non-work must do on my list for this trip and that was to visit the crazy awesome MoMAWhere do I start with the amazing place? Multiple stories of inspiration and breathtaking beauty. Pretty much every artist you can think of wrapped into one building.  

D and I visited MoMA on my last day in Manhattan. Minus a somewhat unpleasant experience with a jerk off of a coat check (yes, I said coat check), the visit was divine. I could have easily spent the entire day there soaking in all of the unbelievable talent oozing from every level.

*This was so peaceful and yet so sad. Visitors are asked to take a piece of candy, which is replenished throughout the day. The process represents continuous depletion and regeneration. The installation was created by the artist after his partner died of AIDS-related complications in 1991. It was lovely.

*Who doesn't love an art exhibit where you get to eat yummy, warm curry and rice? It was the perfect snack and now I can say I was part of an exhibit at MoMA.
