Students will then experience it all first-hand, producing their own show in the brand-new Tour Studio.

The MoMA

Fuel creativity, ignite minds and encourage expression at a visit to MoMA in New York. MoMA is an art gallery that strives to make art a conversation. With exhibits, live rehearsals and areas to make art, there's always something happening. Your students will have the opportunity to discover and connect with art in new ways, with the ultimate goal of sparking curiosity and debate about artistic expression. This year MoMA is celebrating its 90th birthday with its new David Geffen Wing. Creativity will take a new form in student's minds as MoMA pushes the boundaries, merging mediums - from painting to performance; contemporary to classic.
