Folk Art Museum Building Is Going To Be Demolish


Luis Velazquez

Museumof Modern Art (MoMA) is planning to expand its territory and as part of this planning is the demolition of the Folk Art Museum Building that has been part of the museum since many years ago. However, it has become important for the MoMa to expand in order to offer more things.

Architects are in charge of this new restructuration and it was through a press release where the announcement was made. In this press statement it was said that those plans are “the result of a diligent and thoughtful six-month study and design process that explored all options for the site”.

Demolitions are not the only thing that MoMA’s owner are going to do, it is also expected that a tower near to the museum would be taken in order to continue with the expansion fo the museum.

Free Spaces is what it is expected to have in those new places that are going to be taken and demolished. So, if you were thinking it was not that good probably this would make you change your mine. It has become really difficult finding free museums or art collections in the US, but that is what it is trying to be changed in MoMa.


The mystery of the ordinary in the MoMA Museum

When it is about art it seems that artists will never die. This time, René Magritte – one of the most important painters of the 20th century- will be in an exhibition in the Museum of Modern Art in New York.

This is a selection of photos and commercial work from the artist. The MoMA Museum is known because of the greatness of its exhibitions so this seems to be a big one too. The gallery will be open for the public since January 12, 2014.
