AAA Editor Notes

The Museum of Modern Art (MoMA), 11 W. 53rd St., offers a survey of modern and contemporary paintings, sculptures, drawings, prints, photographs, architectural models and plans, design objects, films and videos. High ceilings, expansive spaces and floor-to-ceiling windows contribute to the building's stunning design. The museum is punctuated by such curiosities as a helicopter suspended from the ceiling and a sculpture garden decorated with eye-catching modern and contemporary works. You might want to begin exploring the collections at the top level and work your way downstairs, as the upper floors of the six-story complex contain some of MoMA's most renowned works while the lower floors display rotating works.</br>You can see frequently viewed pieces such as Salvador Dali's &#8220;The Persistence of Memory,&#8221; Claude Monet's &#8220;Water Lilies&#8221; and Vincent van Gogh's &#8220;The Starry Night.&#8221; Other artists represented include Andy Warhol, Jasper Johns, Henri Matisse, Pablo Picasso, Cindy Sherman, Elizabeth Murray and Jackson Pollock. Classic, artistic or documentary movies are shown daily.</br>Food is available. </br>
