Museums make access to art easier for older people with targeted tours and programs.
The Museum of Modern Art hosts an exhibit of Diego Rivera murals through mid-May. The installation features several of Rivera’s portable frescoes from his 1931 exhibition at MoMA, as well as a sketch of Man at the Crossroads, the controversial mural commissioned by Nelson Rockefeller to adorn the RCA Building in Rockefeller Center before it was destroyed. This homecoming represents the murals first return to MoMA in over 80 years.
MoMA’s new Willem de Kooning exhibit has garnered excellent reviews. But like a costly Hollywood film, the show is also something of a gamble.
