The Met opened its New American Wing several years ago, and tonight they opened a members-only preview of that wing's new setup for the Galleries for Paintings, Sculpture, and Decorative Arts. (Opens to the public on Sunday)
Since I get a Met membership every year from my parents for Christmas (that and a National Geographic subscription), naturally, that's where you would've found me tonight.
Y'all. There was a LOT of George Washington.
I shall call it The Blue Room
Madame X in her new home
This picture just cracks me up for some reason. Look at Washington in the background... then look at all these slouching modern twits. (Don't get me wrong. I was slouching too.)
I also took the opportunity to visit the new Islamic art wing when it wasn't achingly crowded. If you get a chance, go. No, seriously. Go.
