High time for "Great Places in Gotham" to visit The Cloisters!
This time, we'll be attending a gallery talk on "Islamic Art". I've been on gallery talks there more times than I can recall, yet I don't ever remember one on this particular theme, and considering all the Crusading that went on during the Middle Ages, I imagine there was an interesting exchange of ideas in art, so let's find out about that.
Now, because The Cloisters is a relatively intimate space, they are very strict about how many folks can congregate. Accordingly, the number for this meetup is being kept down to 7, because if we were larger, we'd have to make our own separate, more expensive arrangements. So, lucky seven it is!
How to meet us: Meet us by 11:30am for this 12pm event at the sign for all Gallery Talks, which is just beyond the Admissions Desk. I will be holding my hand-scrawled MEETUP sign.
Admission: The Gallery Talk is free. There is a suggested admission of $20 to enter The Cloisters, just as there is at The Met itself, but it is actually pay-what-you-will. That means pay what you want at the door, but you must pay something. We do also have our own $1 fee to help defray the costs of maintaining this meetup group, payable to the organizer.
