MOMA reimagined is here! From artist commissions to new spaces for performance, art making, and conversation, every corner of the Museum has been brought to life. Most exciting of all is walking into the galleries and seeing the collection as it has never been seen before, with more art by more artists from more places in the world than we have ever been able to show.
What is it like to expand, close, and reopen one of the world's most visited museums? Cooperation, collaboration, and a bit of luck were key elements in the project that included adding 40,000 square feet of additional gallery space, a flagship MoMA Store, and a brand new restaurant. Learn how MoMA staff united to give its member base and the public a brand new perspective into its massive collection.
