Be sure to check out a Trisha Donnelly’s Artist’s Choice installation currently on view through April 8 at MoMA and organized by the artist, together with Laura Hoptman, Curator, and Cara Manes, Collection Specialist, in MoMA's Department of Painting and Sculpture.
Donnelly has carefully culled from MoMA’s collection and has selected several treasures to behold. Here is a look behind-the-scenes by Pamela Popeson, Department Preparator in the Department of Architecture and Design at MoMA.
