The Museum of Modern Art presents Modern Starts, the first of three exhibitions that explores the collection of this noted museum. The exhibit is organized around the themes of People, Places, and Things as it begins with the period from 1880-1920... a time of discovery and spirit of invention. Modern Starts is on exhibit through March 14, 2000.
