An artist will follow their muse until it leads them to a finished artwork, just as a dog will follow a person carrying a ham sandwich right into a space shuttle. Explore someplace new with today’s Groupon: for $10, you get two admissions to MoMA PS1 in Long Island City (a $20 value based on a $10 suggested donation for each adult).

For four decades, MoMA PS1 has celebrated the best in experimental art, displaying retrospectives, historical surveys, and international installations in an unconventional museum space. More than 50 exhibitions spark the halls each year in an intense display of beauty, depth, and man's willingness to contemplatively stroke his goatee. Inspired by Vietnam liberation movements, Nancy Grossman: Heads captures the unsettling allure of life-size human head sculptures with eyes, ears, and mouths covered with leather straps and buckles. Other current and upcoming exhibitions include Alexis Rockman's Untitled, which portrays a magical animal in gouache, and the museum’s inaugural exhibit, Crayola Square by Sol LeWitt, which evokes youthful memories of wax crayons and eating glitter.

Whether viewing cutting-edge designs or sketching a wall-bound deconstruction, MoMA PS1 patrons can participate in contemporary artistic dialogue throughout the museum. After gazing at the adorned galleries, gather repose in the adjoining bookstore and café, which come complete with painted portals to Narnian worlds.

MoMa PS1

From the outside, it's a humble former school—but step through the century-old structure's doors, and you'll find an always-changing exhibition spotlighting some of today's leading creators of visual art. MoMA PS1 is among the oldest and largest nonprofit contemporary art institutions in the United States, and it's been championing the newest works, artists, genres, and pronunciations of "gouache" since its founding in 1971.

While a shifting kaleidoscope of paintings, photographs, films, and sculptures fills the halls, a few pieces have found a more permanent home at the museum. Visitors can stop by to see works such as A bit of matter and a little bit more, which Lawrence Weiner painted on the doors at PS1's first exhibition; William Kentridge's Stair Procession, which has been waiting for the elevator since 2000; and In the Woods by Ernesto Caivano, an immersive landscape created from paint and paper.
