Moscow Museum of Modern Art

Nicole Jeffords 1 month ago

Okay, guys, I’m going to take you on a little tour of the Moscow Museum of Modern Art. But first I want to answer a much asked question about the weather: we traveled to Moscow mid-August and the days were bright and sunny with temperatures in the low eighties, a perfect escape from the 100 plus degree heat in Austin, Texas. Other than our adventures in the metro, we walked the whole time we were in the city. The modern art museum was situated near Gorky Park. It was not crowded, easy to see paintings at one’s leisure and immediately I was drawn in.

Unfortunately, I don’t have room here to talk about the individual artists and their lives, but there’s always Wikepedia. More next time.
