Art Alert

Readers in the Northeast might be interested in an exhibit at MOMA, Museum of Modern Art, in NYC featured in the Miami Herald today. New Perspectives in Latin American Art, 1930-2006: Selections from a Decade of Acquisitions will be on exhibit through February 25th. If the Herald is to be believed, Cubans figure prominently among the artists with names like Carmen Herrera, Felix González Torres, Abelardo Torres(photographer), and the ill-fated Ana Mendietta.
Although I am no lover of modern art, MOMA’s regular collection is well worth the trip. It is the permanent home to such iconic works as Van Gogh’s “Starry Night,” Rousseau’s “The Dream,” and Dali’s “The Persistence of Memory,” as well as a whole mess of Warhol. Unfortunately, the Dali work is at the Dali Museum in St. Petersburg, FL beginning Feb 1, so it won’t be there.

  1. and not to mention Monet’s Waterlilies; you can spend hours in that room. The first time I was at the MOMA and I saw Starry Night, I got really excited and started screaming at my friends about the painting. To me being in the same room as that painting was like being in the presence of something divine..anyway the guard came over and I was embarrassed cuase I thought “que me hiban a regan~ar, but the guy gave me a tour and told me all sorts of stories about the paintings and the many celebrities that had visited.
