Last week, we launched version 2.0 of “I went to MoMA and…”, which began life as an impromptu experiment to see what would happen if we gave visitors an opportunity to share their experiences at the Museum—whatever those might be. Read more
Many people respond to our “I went to MoMA and…” prompt with words, whether they’re deep thoughts about the meaning of life or stories about time spent with family. But it’s only fitting that at an art museum, visitors would also react with images! Read more

As a regular contributor to Inside/Out, I endeavor to bring topics related to MoMA’s Department of Film and cinema history to you, the reader. I am always interested in talking and writing about films, debating their aesthetic merits, content, form, performances—and I am also very curious to know which films my colleagues across the Museum are seeing, and why.

A few weeks ago we posted a series of notes that visitors had left telling us about dates, kisses, and even marriage proposals taking place at MoMA, as you can see here.

Music and dance can be heard and seen in the city as well as in its surrounding regions, making for a lively experience despite the visibility of poverty. Havana’s charmingly dilapidated urban landscape is speckled with a mix of Lada automobiles from the 1970s and modern Peugeots.

From the celebratory “I went to MoMA and…” responses we pulled from the pile this week, we know you’re out there—turning 9, 21, 30, 50, 65, 80, and everything in between. Read more
