Reopening the Metropolitan Museum of Art was a big step for New York City, and they earned it earlier than many expected. The public is welcome, starting today, September 30th. But we brought back some pictures from an early members opening. Have a look.
The moment’s not lost on the Met as it features an expansive exhibit of paintings by Jacob Lawrence. Lawrence was an African-American artist whose paintings explore painful experiences in the South that drove northward migration.
The roots in today’s America are plain and raw.
An encouragingly long line kept us from seeing it this trip and sharing pictures, but we won’t miss adding it in the future.
There was an addition to the modern galleries that struck a contemporary chord.
Scenes from Reopening the Metropolitan Museum of Art
