Let's Go to the Met!!
Let's spend an afternoon wandering around the Metropolitan Museum of Art, stopping midway for a delicious lunch. We can explore new exhibitions, share our 'old' favorites with each other, and maybe take a tour.
Perhaps we'll visit the five must-sees of the Met: The Greek and Roman Sculpture Court (many of the statues on display here were intended to fill ancient gardens to create delight and comfort - the accomplish the same things here); The Vermeer Collection (Vermeer is treasured as a master of light, and as a sensitive observer of domestic life - a rare focus for a 17th-century artist); Asian Art Collection (the 2nd-floor galleries showcasing this collection may be the most under-appreciated part of the museum); An Impressionist Treasury (Van Gogh's style changed rapidly during his short career, and you can see the transformation clearly in these paintings); The Temple of Dendur (this stunning installation is always filled with visitors, and for an excellent reason - you haven't seen anything like this before. It's worth your time to wait in line for a chance to walk through). Tantalizing stuff, no?
