2022 MoMA Appointment Calendar
For 2022, we’re looking at the open road—how artists in MoMA’s collection have represented this evocative concept with places that are explored via car, foot or through one’s imagination. Modes of transport are represented in such works as Jacob Lawrence’s They also worked in large numbers on the railroad and Andreas Feininger’s photograph West Side Highway, featuring bumper-to-bumper 1940s automobiles. Betye Saar takes us off the road well-traveled into a forest thicket with Lo, The Pensive Peninsula. In Gertrude Käsebier’s The Road to Rome, a child contemplates the journey ahead on a bucolic path.
I hope that these meditative artworks encourage you to look at the world anew, a place full of roads with new opportunities and positive outlooks."—Glenn D. Lowry
