A Day at the MoMA....

Today we headed for the infamous Museum of Modern Art otherwise known as MoMA. It was another cold start to the day.

Being New Year's Eve we thought that today would possibly be a good day to visit as the crowds might be down. We lined up for more than half an hour just to purchase admission tickets.

Then we were shocked at the hour plus line for the cloak room! We were exhausted before we even began!

This is an amazing building, housing wonderful artworks. We spent the morning exploring and again our two little artists were at their best.

We headed across the road and enjoyed a sumptuous meal at an Irish Pup. Garry enjoyed his first real Bangers and Mash in over a year.

Back inside Max and I had a great time creating our own images with our bodies that were projected onto a giant white wall.

We headed out the back to the Education Centre which was almost empty. Down the stairs and we arrived at the children's exploration centre. This was great - the kids explored various media and really had some fun making art.

Mas particularly enjoyed creating his own T Rex shadow puppet and then played with it behind the  Shadow Puppet Screen.

Our visit to MoMA ended with a walk through the beautiful external, sculpture garden. Max hammed it up for the camera at his fathers request.

It was a great, but long day. Yasemin was wrecked, and had to have a rest on the subway ride home. This was a great way to spend the last day of 2012.

    Put this song or another version from youtube on your blog Joe.
    It is a classic New York Song.
    Have fun in the Big Apple...and get to your flight on time. If you forget to take Garry, call me up and I will pick him up in NYC. HA!
