Considered the world's leading institution of modern art, MoMA known as the Museum of Modern Art is affectionately was founded in 1929 by three women who were influential patrons of the arts. Some of the collection pieces include paintings by van Gogh, Monet, and Jackson Pollock and it offers visitors a look into the exciting lives of the paintings, sculptures and other art created by these masters. In addition to the artwork, MoMA offers visitors the opportunity to attend free lectures and daily film and video screenings.
The building the Museum of Modern Art occupies is the original gallery but it has been expanded through the decades to accommodate the growing collection. A multi-departmental structure was put into place in the 1930s to include additional pieces of art that ranged from architecture and design to film, video and photography to prints and illustrated books. The collection grew from the original eight prints and one drawing to over 150,000 paintings and other modern art pieces. MoMA is also the home of over 22,000 films, four million movie stills, 300,000 books, and files on over 70,000 modern artists.
