The Museum of Modern Art (MoMA) in Manhattan, New York is a world-renowned art museum founded in 1929. In 1932, the Museum of Modern Art established the world's first curatorial department devoted to architecture and design. Featuring collections by influential and historically significant designers, MoMA’s point of view is uniquely informed by their historical relationship to design. MoMA has long recognized design’s important role in our culture alongside more traditional mediums like painting and sculpture. Each product is carefully selected by MoMA’s curatorial department, with the goal of making design accessible to as wide an audience as possible.
