GL Day Ender: MoMA Thrilling Masses at Atantic Station

February 9th, 2009 · 2 Comments

If you’ve been through the Atlantic Ave subway station in the last week, you’ve noticed increasing amounts of MoMA stuff around. There are things proclaiming an “art installation” is underway. The turnstiles now sport MoMA logos. We suspect the steel beams will be covered too, making the station look like a huge ad for the museum. What’s it all about? MoMA is installing “reproductions” of some of the classics of modern art in the station. There’s a bizarre “blogger preview” tomorrow at noon, but tomorrow is also the day the show/huge promotion for the museum is scheduled to start. Hey, see a Picasso without really seeing a Picasso while you’re running to catch the 4 Train. The website for the project is here, but it’s just a placeholder right now that takes forever to load.
