Architecture and Design Galleries, third floor
Join us for a hands-on exploration of modern design at MoMA. Handle miniature scale models of classic 20th-century chair designs by some of modernism’s most important designers, and experience a masterpiece of classic modern design—Marcel Breuer’s so-called “Wasily Chair”—as it was meant to be experienced: by actually sitting on it. Take part in a conversation about form, function, and manufacturing materials and techniques related to design objects.
Gallery Sessions, impromptu interactions facilitated by Museum educators that explore the creative process, art history, and the experience of art, take place daily in select galleries. Groups meet in the galleries noted on the schedule. Gallery Sessions are free with Museum admission. No registration is required.
Sign language–interpreted Gallery Sessions are held every fourth Sunday of the month at 1:30 p.m. FM headsets for sound amplification are available for all talks.
