Right after I moved to New York in 2003, I started working at MoMA, working in development and membership, during a traveling exhibition of Matisse and Picasso that had also hit the Tate Modern and the Musée Picasso in Paris.
Because MoMA had temporarily relocated to Long Island City during a massive renovation of their midtown Manhattan museum building, the exhibition t-shirts read: LONDON. PARIS. QUEENS.
It was easy for me to sell members on the exhibit, as it was breathtaking. Most revelatory for me was learning that Picasso was technically so proficient: all his early paintings looked like photographs.
I continued working at MoMA in the general counsel’s office, where I edited correspondence to and for the Board of Directors of the museum and coordinated their meetings.
