Travel with us to the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City for a virtual/online tour of their amazing American Art collection.
In part one of this two-part program we'll focus on American art created from the colonial period through 1900 (part two - Saturday, July 3 at 3:00 PM EDT - and listed separately on our calendar, focuses on American art from 1900 to the present).
The Metropolitan Museum of Art has perhaps the world's leading collection of American Art.
Some of the artists we'll be featuring include:
John Singleton Copley
George Caleb Bingham
John Singer Sargent
and many more!
The Metropolitan Museum of Art of New York City, colloquially "the Met", is the largest art museum in the United States. With 6,479,548 visitors to its three locations in 2019, it was the fourth most visited art museum in the world. Its permanent collection contains over two million works, divided among 17 curatorial departments. The main building at 1000 Fifth Avenue, along the Museum Mile on the eastern edge of Central Park in Manhattan's Upper East Side, is by area one of the world's largest art galleries. A much smaller second location, The Cloisters at Fort Tryon Park in Upper Manhattan, contains an extensive collection of art, architecture, and artifacts from medieval Europe. On March 18, 2016, the museum opened the Met Breuer museum along Madison Avenue on the Upper East Side; it extends the museum's modern and contemporary art program.
Your host for this program is Robert Kelleman, the founder/director of the non-profit community organization Washington, DC History & Culture.
