A Little Culture

While we didn't have a great deal of time to sight see, we did include some non-dog activities in our trip. Day one in NY city we went to MoMA (the Museum of Modern Art). It was a short walk from where we were staying. This statue was right outside the museum.
While I have family members who know a great deal about art, I am fairly ignorant about it. But I do enjoy looking and learning. MoMA is way too big for us to see everything in the time we had, but thanks to an insider we had some hints on parts we definitely wanted to hit. It was neat to see "Starry Night".
And there were a lot of Picasso's works I enjoyed looking at.
Some modern art is, well, modern??? This piece was made by dusting chocolate onto a canvas! I'm not sure if I truly appreciated what the artist was going for...but it did make me hungry ;D
And I know I didn't get the message here...but this woman was quite intently studying the piece.
