Above is what the Museum of Modern Art in New York looks like right now. The museum is closed while it undergoes a renovation, it is scheduled to reopen in October.
While MOMA itself is closed, Virtual MOMA takes you behind the closed doors for a look at the museum’s collection. These photos are from the design floor. The Value of Good Design is a distinctly retro exhibit. In the 1950’s more and more Americans were becoming homeowners. This was due in part to the prosperity that followed World War II and because of the availability of affordable mortgages for GI’s. So it’s not surprising so much design of the times was geared for the modern homeowner, modern that is in a 50’s sort of way.
