Event Description

After the galleries have closed to the public, join our exclusive tour of The Shape of Things: Photographs from Robert B. Menschel, an exhibition of images brought into MoMA’s collection with the support of Robert B. Menschel. Menschel, a long-time member of MoMA’s Committee on Photography, recently donated 162 images to the Museum from his own personal collection. The exhibition displays over 150 years of photographic history, providing a fascinating look into the mind of an avid collector.

A limited number of tickets ($75; $65 MoMA Members and employees of Corporate Members) are available. The tour is an hour long. For more information, please contact groupservices@moma.org or (212) 708-9685.
