Museum or Subway?

Now I can go to the Museum of Modern Art every morning on my way to work, kind of.

Nearly every single subway station in New York is plastered with ads for TV shows, new movies, whatever you can imagine. And most of them are defaced, and not nicely (Although often very cleverly. But that's another blog post, and I'll have to take photos first.).

Anyway, it was a pleasant surprise to see the entire Atlantic Avenue-Pacific Street station -- one of the biggest, if not *the* biggest, station in Brooklyn -- covered with photos of MoMA's permanent collection today. They'll be on display for the next six weeks.

The New York Times has a good article about it, with a couple of photos.

Without a doubt, the reproduction of the Jackson Pollock painting I noticed this morning has to be more enlightening than yet another poster for "He's Just Not That Into You."

  1. That movie was sexist drivel, and I rarely say that about chick flicks.
