Manhattan’s Museum of Modern Art (MoMA), considered one of the most important museums of progressive and modern art and culture in the world, this month added its ninth car, a red 1973 DS, to its automotive display gallery.


MoMA was the first to establish an Architecture and Design department, three years after its opening in 1929, and was also one of the first to host an automobile-themed exhibit, “Eight Cars,” in 1951.  However, it took until 1972 for MoMA to add its first car, a 1946 Cisitalia 202 GT.
