Destination Modern Art - MOMA

Grab your kids and join a couple of space aliens on a mission to explore modern art from MOMA's permanent collection (and at its satellite PS1), a former public school building.

Although it seems a touch odd that a museum of the caliber of Art Institute of Chicago has mounted an exhibition based on a single painting, Georges Seurat's A Sunday on La Grande Jatte (1884) is, as stated at the web site, "one of the most beloved, famous, and frequently reproduced paintings in the world ... the painting is an icon and a destination in itself for visitors." To elucidate La Grande...

The Art & Science Collaborations group was started by artist Cynthia Pannucci in 1988 when she began to realize that there was a general lack of support for technology-based art across the United States. In the past 16...

He has created images of animals and objects through travels by foot, boat, bicycle and plane. The project is also meant...
