new york | people watching at the moma

I love museums.  I love art museums.  I love modern art museums. I couldn't tell you how I first started loving museums, maybe it's a trait I inherited from my Dad.  But I could get lost in museums.  I could sketch and take pictures endlessly if you put me in a museum.  When I was in New York back in April I decided to visit their MOMA and I loved how alive I felt when I stepped through the doors.  Being surrounded by art just feels so right.  (I have this little secret that I collect prints/artwork from independent artists.  I have tons of pieces saved up for when I have lots of wall space.  For now the prints live in a safe spot in my bedroom.)

One thing that did intrigue me about this museum were the amount of people who seriously studied the artwork.  I wondered what each person thought about each piece.  I wondered if it spoke to them, and if it, how it moved them.  It was fascinating.

Visiting the MOMA was such an inspiring experience.
