Fifty years later, some of the original work of Yoko Ono.
MoMA is offering Yoko in the spot they gave Magritte last year or so. It is a collection of works done, largely before John Lennon, before she became a household word and was considered avant garde. There are haiku like poems and a staircase to the sky, which is fun. Yoko never loses her sense of humor.

Jean-Michel Basquiat attracted tons of crowds
The intriguing drawing room of Gilbert and George near the Endless House: Intersection of Art and Architecture display.
I have noticed the Modern always does some display about architecture or functional art. This one is interesting, but not as much fun as the German kitchen or the pre-fab houses done through the years.
A great model of the Farnsworth House by Mies van der Rohe.
Vito Aconci’s Instant House #2, Drawing is really a funny architectural sketch.
Making Music Modern: Design for Ear and Eye seemed to be very popular by most people, one of those shows the public seems to take a real interest in.
Design Elements for the Common Good another intriguing array of contemporary design work.
My favorite, the one I had to leave was the Jacob Lawrence show.
Having had to leave, it was a shame not to have a decent shot. But in this show, people were actually reverent.
