Sneaky Peek : MoMA

We love living in Hobart and having the Museum of Old and New Art – MONA as our ‘local’ art museum.  What a treasure indeed.

Another favourite gallery for me is the Museum of Modern Art – MoMA in New York.  When Nick and I visited the Big Apple in 2010 we spent most of the day savouring the amazing art, food, design and the sheer delight of MoMA.

There is something fanciful about wandering around an iconic gallery or famous museum.  Being in the presence of such famous works by Pollock, Matisse or Picasso for example, makes me feel really happy.  I struggle to comprehend that the piece of art I am actually looking at (and wishing I could touch) is the original piece – that sheer talent is humbling.
