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:

Artists and Amateurs: Etching in Eighteenth-Century France

The Roof Garden Commission: Imran Qureshi

Janet Cardiff: The Forty Part Motet

Interwoven Globe: The Worldwide Textile Trade, 1500–1800

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 perfectly 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!

    So, how are we connecting?

    October 2, 2013

    • Shawn

      We're going to meet on the northwest corner of the intersection where the 85th Street Transverse, 5th Ave. and E. 84th Street all meet. The intersection is right at the north end of the museum, and northwest corner is on the one on the same side of 5th Ave as the museum, but on the far corner of the transverse from it. And in addition to those complicated instructions, I'll be sending out an email with my contact info to help people find us.

    Not sure if I can go but just in case what subway would I take. I live in Long Island so am not that familiar with some of the subways.

      The closest trains that I know of are the 4, 5 and 6 to 86th Street. You have to walk from there. Try hopstop.com to give you directions.
