Today’s Anniversary: The Museum of Modern Art

It's November 7, and on this date in 1929, the Museum of Modern Art opened in New York City.  The MoMA contains more than 150,000 pieces of art by such artists as Vincent Van Gogh, Claude Monet, Salvador Dali, Andy Warhol and Andrew Wyeth, father of American School graduate Jamie Wyeth.  The American School has a pair of art courses in its curriculum.  Drawing Animals and Drawing Landscapes are half-unit courses that require students put forth time and effort in an attempt to perfect their artistic skills.  Both courses provide a solid foundation in art and would be a good first step for students who wish to have their works in the MoMA someday!
