The museum under consideration is the Museum of Modern Art (MoMA), which is located on the Sixth Avenues and 53rd Street in New York City, Manhattan, USA. The knowledge about the institute was accessed electronically through a database search on the internet. The museum was established in 1929 as an educational institution, and its mission has remained constant to this day (The Museum of Contemporary Art, “Exhibition History”). The designers wanted to establish a facility with the aim of promoting the use of contemporary art among the varied local and global audiences that visit it. Today, the museum is committed to art that involves the understanding of the public about the traditions of modern art through the various forms of visual expression that it covers.
The Museums is unique for its collections that entail both modern and contemporary type of art. Since the formation of the facility in 1929, the institution has advanced and currently includes over 200,000 works that span over 150 years (The Museum of Modern Art, “Exhibition History”). The artwork in the collection is diverse and manifests the educational goal that the founders intended from the broad range of informational art resources that include a wide range of art works that include design, prints, painting, sculpture, architecture and electronic media (Pinterest 2).

Part 2: The Museum Artwork Analysis
The relevant artwork that will be analyzed is the art “While We’re Young” by Noah Baumbach. The image features a group of people who are in a car and who appear to be focused on a camera while one of them seems not interested as he is the driver. Both genres are represented. However, from the assessment of the image, it is apparent that the artist uses various forms of visual elements in creating the image that easily characterizes him as a great person in artwork (Carroll 3).
One of the key features the image is the usage of form which is described as the constituent elements that independently enable the image to have meaning. One such element is the consideration of color, which is seen to be an interplay of both light and dark sections. The essence of these features is that they enable the viewer to differentiate the hat and the faces of the subjects illustrated because while the faces are light, the hats are darker in color (Belton 1). The relevance of this feature is that it enables the reader t relate the mood and atmosphere of the image.
The other relevant aspect of the image is the pattern, which entails the repetition of elements of the image that enable the artist communicate about the concepts of balance, rhythm and movement. The featured pattern is, however, the manmade type as it does not entail the coverage of natural phenomena but is included primarily for decorative purposes. An example of this feature is in the illustration of the book that is in front of the driver’s steering wheel. The author considers the book cover to assume a checked appearance through compositional intersection of black and white sections for a decoration across the work (Belton 1).
Furthermore, another relevant segment of the image that enables the reader to create meaning out of the author in the inclusion of aspects of line as the core of the image. By definition, line entails the foundation of any drawing and is featured in the “While we’re young” image. The expressive qualities that are appropriate from the usage of constitutions lines is that they are used to portray different directions. However, the author also uses thin lines as seen in drawing the hair of the female occupants of the car with the style being significant in the expression of delicacy.
It is further critical to illustrate the demonstration of shape as a core of the image featured because through the lines that are used, the viewer is able to appreciate the formation of an image. The shapes that are apparent are three-dmensional and are a representation of the individual lines. For example, from the use of continuous lines, a shape of a mainly seen as the artist displays process in combining both continuous, thick, and thin lines to create an image of a human being.
Overall, therefore, the image shown is a classic that enables the artist to display experience in art. There are several visual elements that are used in the creation of a scenario in which men and women are glued on a camera while the driver seems to be uninterested. The image line feature is especially critical because it is the foundation of all the art covered because at least every section embodies a thin, thick, or continuous line. These lines then combine to form the shapes that create the humans, the camera and the steering wheel. Through the use of both light and dark section in the coloration process, the viewer is able to differentiate several elements of the image including the head structure and the face of the subjects through contrast. Thus the use of color creates the effect that a group of human beings of white descent are driving while taking photos of themselves using the featured camera.
Part 3: Life and Career of the Artist
The artist of the featured image is Noah Baumbach who was born in 1969. Baumbach was born to fail critics Georgia Brown and Jonathan Baumbach with his father aloes acting as a writer in his career. He was brown in a family that included four other siblings and he grew in Brooklyn in the US (IMDb.com). Baumbach began his studies in Vassar College and began his careers as a filming artiste. He made his first entrance into writing and filming industry using the film Kicking and Screaming in 1995 when he was just 26 years old. Later in 1997, he pioneered the writing of Mr. Jealousy that featured a jealous girlfriend who sneaks into a therapy session to unravel the type of relationship that she was in with her boyfriend. It is apparent that these early breaks and achievements in his career created the inspiration and spur for the success that the artist displayed later in his artistic creations (Kreiss).
Another critical feature in the assessment of the backgrounds of the artist and the features that contributed to the process in drawing is the challenge that he gave himself at a tender age. The author of a newspaper interview with the artist cites a scenario where Baumbach claims that there was a point in time when he felt that he was running late for time considering his age and goals in life. Usually, he would hang out with his doctor who would laugh the claims of as he would complain about the frequent headaches that he was having. The interviewer cites “And there’s a certain point – which unfortunately you’ll get to at some point, too – where they actually start taking you seriously: ‘Why don’t we get you an MRI?’ and you’re like, ‘No, I’m joking! I thought we do this and I leave feeling better!” (Aroesti). Through these conversation, the reader gets the impression that the life event of having to meet his physician regality and talking out his goals got the artist inspired to pursue his goal of being recognized through art.
In summary, it is clear that the artwork that is presented is subjective in the manner in which it creates the impression that the occupants of the car are of White descent. The other assumption is that they are likely to be hunters or in some form of adventure from the color of their cloths. The reader also gets the impression that the driver is not happy while the rest of the members seem to be excited about the trip possibly because he is missing the fun of taking pictures. These subjective elements of the artwork thus make one feel that the color and movement that are describes convey the effect of an enthusiast adventurous group with a sad driver.
