This was yesterday; MoMA’s closed on Tuesdays. I think I’ll remember because I tried to go there two weeks ago and found it shut. The lobby is usually open, though, in case you want to cut through or peruse the gift shop.
The Cindy Sherman retrospective is up at MoMA. The show, with over 170 photos, will be there for another two months and a bit, until June 11. In contrast, these plastic topiary bushes in front of the Warwick will be there indefinitely, season after season.
The food vendors at 54th Street are much less popular than the Halal guys at 53rd. The corner is not is not taken over by meat in foil dishes. We can enjoy the workaday vistas without olfactory distraction and dangerous sidewalk grease spots.
This week is perfect for school field trips. Next week is vacation, no work is getting done anyway, so why not go look at some modern art? Adults are wandering around thinking, Shouldn’t I be doing something for the holiday?
