The Museum of Modern Art, MoMA PS1, and Volkswagen Group of America announce an expanded two-year partnership that will provide lead support for all of MoMA’s award-winning education programs, key exhibitions, and innovative initiatives that will share MoMA and MoMA PS1’s programming with a broad, global audience.

Volkswagen Group of America has been a major partner of MoMA and MoMA PS1 since 2011, supporting a wide range of exhibitions, educational opportunities, and special event programming. The new initiatives announced build on the success of the partnership.

The new focus on supporting MoMA Education will expand the Museum’s opportunities to reach a worldwide audience of learners. The profound shift toward digital learning that has occurred since MoMA launched its first curriculum website in 2006—a transition not only from print to digital, but also towards customizable, interactive, self-guided, anytime-anywhere learning—has allowed MoMA to produce and aggregate a wealth of multimedia content that encourages a wide audience of participants not only to read and learn about works of art, but also to reflect, create, participate, and share. From instructor-led online courses to interactive apps, to free downloadable resources, MoMA’s digital initiatives help expand perspectives and enrich lives for a growing global constituency. MoMA Education also offers customized programs for more than 900,000 people of all ages, backgrounds, and abilities who take part each year. The expanded partnership will allow MoMA Education new opportunities to connect visitors with living artists, leverage emerging technologies, and further illuminate the richness of MoMA’s collection.
