Just saw via the MoMA’s Twitter feed that there is a monkey going around the museums of New York!
Apparently a pianist, JoseSPiano, is behind these photos on his Flickr stream.
Some of my favorites from the monkey’s visit to the MoMA:
Monkey with Monet.
Just to clarify, this is what he’s lounging on, on one of those pink cushions to be specific (this installation was great for tired MoMA-goers … I miss it!):
And here he is at the Brooklyn Museum, which I have yet to visit. He’s certainly motivating me to go more.
These photos reminded me of Hoops and Yoyo and the photos that people send in of their Hoops and Yoyo plush toys going around the world, which can be found here. A few years ago, I, too, purchased a pair of these guys so I could photograph them everywhere … but I guess it never happened. Alas! We have Monkey now.
