Let's Go to the Met

The Metropolitan Museum of Art, otherwise affectionately known as the Met, is without a doubt New York's favorite museum- and for good reason. This vast museum holds art for everyone's eye. Into Bernini? Gotcha covered. Do they have Rembrandt's paintings? You betcha. Is it possible you won't find something to enjoy in here? A snow ball has a better chance in... well, you know. So, whatever type of art you enjoy, or even if you're not sure what type of art you like- come out and enjoy the museum with us.

A few of the current exhibits, click on each to find out a little about them:

Punk: Chaos to Couture

Photography and the American Civil War

African Art, New York, and the Avant-Garde

The Roof Garden Commission: Imran Qureshi

and many, many more...

And I should take the opportunity to say it's "Pay as you wish," meaning you can literally pay as little momney as you wish. The recommended donation is $20, but if you want to give a dollar, that's perrfectly fine. It's not just a great museum, but one you can visit on a budget, as well.

So look forward to good art, good company, and possibly a decent meal after if enough people are interested. See you then!

Anyone that asks from this point forward, I will try to send it to you when I see the request, but in going to be underground and put contact here and there, so it's pot luck from here on out.

    Take the No. 7 train at Times Square to Grand Central or walk to Grand Central on the east side (it's only a few blocks.) Then get on the uptown Green Line train (No. 6) headed north. Get off at 86th and walk west to Fifth Avenue. Meeting place is on Fifth Ave between 84th and 85th streets.
