December 2013 at MoMA
This holiday season make MoMA part of your annual tradition—get the kids out of the house by joining a family gallery talk or dropping in on our newest MoMA Art Lab, complete your shopping list with unique gifts from our retail stores, or enjoy some time away from the hustle and bustle by taking in our latest exhibitions. It's a great way to reset and recharge during this busy time of year.
Opening this month, Ileana Sonnabend: Ambassador for the New looks at the role of the visionary gallerist who championed artists such as Robert Rauschenberg, Andy Warhol, and Jeff Koons at key moments in their careers. In the theaters we're excited to launch Our Town, a new series focused on geographically rooted filmmakers, beginning with Baltimore's Barry Levinson, John Waters, and Matthew Porterfield. And for the last two weeks of December, we’re screening pre–Russian Revolution silent gems from Films Albatros.
From the sweeping Inventing Abstraction exhibition that started out the year, to the immersive Isaac Julien installation currently on view in the Marron Atrium, we hope MoMA's programming is always memorable. Of course, part of making those memories is sharing them, which is central to what MoMA membership is all about. The special access that members receive—like $5 guest passes, exclusive Member Previews and Member Early Hours (for guests, too), and Member Gallery Talks—allows for an unparalleled experience every time you visit, so consider purchasing a gift membership for someone you know—it's a meaningful present that can be enjoyed in so many ways.
Thank you for your continued support of MoMA, and best wishes for a happy and healthy new year!
