One of the most important museums of modern art, the Museum of Modern Art (MoMa) located in New York City, will re-open its doors. The museum closed since June to work on some renovations. Now opening in October 21st, it will have new rooms and gallery spaces.
Forty thousand square feet of additional space have been added to the museum which will enable more expositions. The museums chief financial officer, Jan Postma, explained to Timethat the purpose of the renovations was to “better connect the museum to the people and streets of New York City.” The museum will have new galleries on a street level that will expose art to the people on the street. The new art collections will be by many artists from diverse geographies and backgrounds to diversify the museums expositions.
Marie-Josée and Henry Kravis Studios will be the new spaces that will focus on a sound installation called Rainforest V. The museum will also open a Creativity Lab focused on education and the search of new ideas.
Many excitedly await the reopening of the museum. With a more diverse community of artists, the art will reach further inspirational spaces that it hadn’t reached before.
