In ancient Greece, the agora was an outdoor gathering place where students learned from philosophers who posed moral, social, cultural, and political questions. Our take on these open forums invites discussion about art and design in our world through a series of open-ended questions. Taking place in the People’s Studio and moderated by MoMA educators, this summer’s theme is "the city."
These events meet in the People’s Studio on Floor 3 and are free for members and Museum ticket holders. No registration is required.
Education at MoMA is made possible by a partnership with Volkswagen of America.
Adult and Academic Programs are made possible by endowments established by Agnes Gund and Daniel Shapiro, The Junior Associates of The Museum of Modern Art, Walter and Jeanne Thayer, and by the gifts of Alan Kanzer. Additional support is provided by the Annual Education Fund.
