A visit to the PS1 Museum of Contemporary Art   2009-01-07

 

This affiliate of MOMA, located right across the river from MOMA in Long Island City, Queens, has more of what you would call 'cutting-edge' contemporary art and if you have a sense of humor is usually a fun experience.

 

It is name after the actual school, PS 1, that used this building until the 1960s, and subsequently purchased from the City of New York by the museum founders in the 1970s.
