As third year MFA graduate students approaching our thesis semester, we were fortunate enough in our fundraising aspirations to meet our goal for a week long trip to NYC. There were countless moments I could share: from experiencing a large city overflowing with artists, various cultures, and galleries, to the constant movement and flow of a people within an urban metropolis like New York. One contemporary museum in particular was a highlight. The MOMA/PS1 was one of the most interesting and current selections of contemporary artists. Aside from the artwork the building itself had an aged and considered aesthetic that really caught my eye. I think I can speak on behalf of everyone that went on the trip that this experience has been rewarding and eye opening.
