ARTmonday: My Visit to MoMA

Last weekend my husband and I took a jaunt to New York City. The excuse was a fundraiser for Castle Hill, an arts center on the Cape, but we also caught up with old friends and spent the afternoon at MoMA. We hadn’t been in quite a while, and were exhilarated at every turn. Here are 30 highlights. While you’re at it, look back at MoMA in a Minute, which never fails to mesmerize.
