Museum of Modern Art, NYC

Museum of Modern Art in New York. Packed out - far too many people to chill out and enjoy, but still, not to be missed

We looked at the 20th century exhibits of the permanent collection and two temporary exhibitions, one of Diego Riviera's murals and one of Cindy Sherman's photographs.

Five floors, packed with art and with people enjoying the art

Situated at the entrance, these 'gentlemen' turned their head sand followed you with their gaze as you passed.

In this post I want to concentrate on the sculpture garden of the museum.

A fantastic space very condusive to relaxing

the fact that it was sunny and 25oC also helped immensely
