free art and farmers market
friday nights are free at moma. so, we decided to take advantage, and go check out the art. the line was rather long, and the galleries full, but things moved rather quickly. we decided to just check out floors 3 and 2 this time, saving 4 and 5 for our next visit. the 4th and 5th floors house the sculpture and paintings, with all the well known artists. the 3rd floor is the architecture and design floor. this was pretty cool, with industrial design objects as well as architectural models and drawings. the 2nd floor is the contemporary collection. there was a photography exhibition going on there, which i really enjoyed.
saturday morning we ran out to do some errands, and on the way back we stopped at the green market on 57th street. this is held on wednesdays and saturdays, and has a slightly differing group of people selling each time. i wanted to make soup with my turkey carcass from thanksgiving, so we picked up some carrots, onion, and potatoes to include in the soup. i also picked up a loaf of walnut oatmeal bread and a small pecan pie. yum. i think this green market will be a weekly event. its less expensive than the grocery store and fresher. what's not to love?
