Museum of Modern Art Prepares a Fitting Tribute to Mr. & Mrs. Bailey's Love of Art and NYC
The New MoMA will prominently recognize the Bailey’s devotion to the arts with the dedication of the Glenn W. and Cornelia T. Bailey Garden Grove located in the Abby Aldrich Rockefeller Sculpture Garden.
Dedicated in 1953 in memory of one of the three extraordinary women who founded The Museum of Modern Art, The Abby Aldrich Rockefeller Sculpture Garden lies at the heart of the Museum. This oasis in midtown Manhattan serves as a spectacular setting for visitors to enjoy art in the outdoors, and provides countless moments of peace and tranquility in an otherwise bustling city.
Seasonal plantings, trees (including Whitespire Asian Birch, Weeping European Beech, and Chinese Elms), reflecting pools, and rotations of modern and contemporary sculpture – including those by Picasso, Calder, Barnett and others – welcome millions of visitors to the garden each year.
Over many decades, numerous special exhibitions, concerts, and festive social events have also taken place in this iconic outdoor space, making MoMA’s Sculpture Garden a vital and cherished part of New York’s urban life and landscape.
The Museum is re-opening in October, 2019 and unveiling stunning new galleries and spaces for performances and events that will transform the Museum. Along with the physical changes, MoMA will be showing off their vast collection in new and unprecedented ways hoping to bring more voices and perspectives to their galleries.
