In honor of the passing of prolific designer Ivan Chermayeff, #MoMACollection posters created by his graphic design firm for Pan Am World Airways are now on view on the second floor. As a principle of the graphic design firm Chermayeff & Geismar & Haviv, first established under a different name in 1957, Ivan Chermayeff played an outsize role in the development of the visual vocabulary of post-World War II America. Since its founding 60 years ago, Chermayeff and his team have created trademarks, advertisements, signs, and brand identities for some of the most well-known companies and organizations, including the logo for the Museum of Modern Art. Ivan was a MoMA trustee for over 20 years.

Church of the Holy Sepulchre: In 2016, National Geographic had the exclusive opportunity to document the historic renovation of the tomb of Christ, located in the center of the Church of the Holy Sepulchre in Jerusalem. National Geographic Explorer Corey Jaskolski was part of the team on the ground that created a 3-D record of the site using LIDAR scans, high-resolution photos and video. Corey's groundbreaking visualization data has been animated into an immersive experience at our exhibition "Tomb of Christ: The Church of the Holy Sepulchre Experience." nationalgeographic.org/dc/exhibitions/tomb-of-christ/

In the 1830s, Paris became a major center of accordion production, which flourished until the Franco-Prussian War of 1870-71. To compete with makers in Austria and Germany, Paris manufacturers successfully marketed their instruments by applying rich and costly decoration. This instrument follows a model by Demian of 1831, and is one of two surviving instrument of this type to have a second button row for the accidentals, it is therefore known as a "Paris accordions perfectionnes" or a "perfected" accordion.
