The MoMA is New York's Museum of Modern Art, where you can find everything from the guitar that Picasso made out of cardboard to a bed of nails painted green so it looks like grass. The world's largest and most inclusive collection of modern painting and sculpture comprises some 3,600 works dating from the late nineteenth century to the present. It provides a comprehensive selection of the major artists and movements since the 1890s, from Paul Cézanne's The Bather and Vincent van Gogh's The Starry Night to masterworks of today. MoMA also owns some 14,000 films and four million film stills, as well as 140,000 books, artist books, and periodicals, all part of the Museum's library. And don't forget to stop by the gift shop for some modern gadgets and gizmos.
