I went to MoMA (Museum of Modern Art) on Thursday with Gavin, and it was so nice to be able to just take in some great art and escape from daily tasks! A friend recently asked me how I can afford to do cool things around the city while being a student. And let me just say, it’s because I’m a student that I have access to these cool things! My NYU ID card can get me into many museums throughout the city for FREE. That’s right, access to world-class pieces of art and history – at no extra cost.
Since this wasn’t my first time at MoMA, I decided to take pictures of pieces that I hadn’t really given much attention to before. So here’s some of what I saw:

I felt so inspired after my trip to the museum that I took a few modern pictures of myself (while drinking some wine):

I wish I’d minored in art history while in my undergrad because I could really spend hours upon hours just getting lost inside of an art museum (I can’t wait to visit the Met sometime soon). There’s just something about viewing someone else’s art that is so personal – whether they were commissioned to paint it (my favorite artist Diego Velazquez was always commissioned to paint portraits of royalty, but he always inserted his own personal touch into his paintings) or were creating it for themselves or creating it just for art’s sake.
Have you taken a trip to your local art museum recently? I’d love to see your pictures!
