Earlier this year, MoMA wanted to find a “fun, creative” way for the more than 3 million people who visit the museum annually to share their experiences exploring its galleries. The resulting project, “I went to MoMA and…,” was introduced in February. The museum distributed notecards featuring the entreaty: “What’s your story? Leave your mark on MoMA.” Visitors obliged, writing feedback, random thoughts and even drawing messages about their visits.
The effort has been expanded to the fence erected in front of a vacant lot adjacent to the modern art institution. There, selected notecards are reproduced, poster-size, on a series of mesh panels, creating a wall of literary and visual musings. It is quite a sight.
