The Museum of the Moving Image, located in Queens, New York, reopened on January 15, 2011, after a major renovation and addition. Its striking new home, desigined by architect Thomas Leeser, features new facilities for interacting with and studying screen culture in all its forms. Since opening in 1988, the museum has advanced the public understanding and appreciation of the art, history, technique, and technology of film, television, and digital media through its collection of 130,000 artifacts, the largest collection of its kind in the world. switchmodern attended the press preview and was awed by the clean, modern spaces and new venues for rotating exhibitions and the permanent archives. It's easy to get to from Manhattan and is surrounded by good restaurants.
